spectatorship as personal gratification.

...one of the best pure racing movies ever made. But if you don't like automobile racing, you might not find much to enjoy.

It's better perhaps to view it as a visual poem about cars in motion.

Who needs a story when all you care about is the racing!

Audience Reviews for Le Mans

A racing movie made purely for racing enthusiasts. Some great racing footage wrapped around what is a very weak plot.

Your enjoyment of it will depend on your love for racing as there's very little else.

Cars, Romance and Testosterone. Great use of stock footage. I really like this McQueen movie. I wouldn't be surprised if Hollywood remakes it... I'm sure this thought isn't that far fetched
