Roger Donaldson directs this informative, if straightforward documentary on the F1 driver.
A terrific documentary about a quiet achiever.
For racing fans, McLaren is a no-brainer.
A fascinating and genuinely illuminating documentary about New Zealand motor racing icon Bruce McLaren.
McLaren is a fine documentary made by Ballarat-born NZ filmmaker Roger Donaldson.
McLaren stands as more a celebration than sombre eulogy ... and should hold differing types of appeal to various generations.
Donaldson's film captures this lost era of motor racing through a rich selection of archive and home movie footage, though some newly reconstructed scenes and animations would have been better avoided.
An earnest but one-note portrait of a racing legend that never quite gets up to speed.
Taking a leaf out of Asif Kapadia's award winning documentary Senna (2010), Donaldson offers a comprehensive account of the highs and lows in the man's short, yet fruitful career.
Donaldson does a fine job of celebrating his subject's many achievements. Yet compared to, say, Ayrton Senna, McLaren himself doesn't cut a compelling figure.
The talking heads are framed by captions that at times make the film look like a classy PowerPoint presentation, but its mix of lovely, fuzzy archive footage and pretty reconstructions makes it feel like a kind of docufiction.
A paper-thin portrait of the racing car driver and designer Bruce McLaren, it is constructed with all the verve and passionate inquiry of a press release.
