    Senna

    Finally saw the Senna documentary. It is the type of film that stays with you for a few days after.

    Would be interested to hear what the F1 fans on the board thought of it.

    Btw, it's available via Netflix instant streaming collection (also at amazon instant video, iTunes, etc.)

    I thought it was simply incredible, the footage at the drivers meetings was so real that it was almost surreal, for that slice of time I really felt I walked and talked with him. Last year there were some amazing documentaries, and this one was without a doubt one of the very best.

    It's a shame it didn't get the Oscar, but against Charles Ferguson's Inside Job nothing could be seen as being so important.

    Thank you for the recommendation! I'm not a hardcore F1 fan, but I felt the documentary was a great tribute to Senna and his dominance as a driver in that era.
    My Best,

    I was most impressed by Senna's handling of Jackie Stewart's critical interview question about the amount of racing incidents he had (I think his career total was 13). The guy was remarkably articulate considering English was not his native tongue. Jackie's head must have been spinning.

    BTW: I think Lewis Hamilton had 13 racing incidents this season alone.

    The inside look into the rivalry between Prost and Senna was fascinating.

    Can't wait for the Niki Lauda vs James Hunt movie that is currently being made (directed by Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, among others) and scripted by Peter Morgan (The Queen, Last King of Scotland, Frost/Nixon)).

    yes - i have high hopes for the film - since the folks involved are capable of something good, and the personalities were larger than life - and then there is the Richard Burton connection on top of it for sone non-racing related drama

    they've already been shooting at N?rburgring - some photos:

    Damn, I didn't realized they'd started already, wonder what other tracks they're doing?

    I see the DP for Rush will be Anthony Dod Mantle (Slumdog, 127 hours), so should be exciting visually.

    Unfortunately it won't be shot in 3D

    If 3D is done right (like James Cameron) it could have given a spectacular driver POV experience...


    Speaking of which - which racing film(s) in the past has done the best job of putting one in the driver's seat? (other than the Imax films like Super Speedway)?
