Prior to watching this film, I haven't any clue who Ayrton Senna and I haven't watched a Formula One race either.

Senna is portrayed as a deeply passionate and stubborn man, whose charisma and perseverance earned him legions of fans and admirers.

This documentary should be the first lock of the 2012 Oscar season. A thrilling, uplifting heartbreaker of a film.

Right now, the film is in limited release but hopefully it will gain more theater screenings in the coming weeks with word of mouth. Regardless of if you know the man or the legend or if you're a fan of the sport, Senna is a fascinating character and human. Also, you don't have to know anything or even like Formula one racing to be driven by this film.

I recommend you bug your nearest hometown arthouse/independent cinema or even megaplex for them to screen the film. It's definitely worth it.

SO who actually followed Ayrton Senna back then when he was at his peak? How do you see how he fits into the history of the sport? AS an individual and an idol? Does anyone here follow the sport today?

@tsarstepan,
Quote:
[S]enna, Asif Kapadia's doc about the selfsame Brazilian Formula One driver that's being released by the tiny Producers Distribution Agency (the same shingle that got all that mileage out of Exit Through the Gift Shop): It had an admittedly very small debut — just two theaters — but it had an amazing per screen average ($33K), which means between that and the top-flight critical reviews, it'll likely do very, very well over the next couple of months.
