The interview subjects aren't particularly eloquent, though; they tend to stop the movie dead in its tracks.
[A] fascinating documentary ...
As dramatically satisfying as the most crowd-pleasing scripted sports saga.
Despite its oversights, the film - shot and scored beautifully - is an enthusiastic introduction to this delirious event and its peposo of passion, style and intrigue.
While Spender spends enough time with both new and retired jockey legends to collect a gold mine of macho, bullheaded rapport, you wish she delved deeper into the more sinister, behind-the-scenes wheelings and dealings.
If the film is understandably intoxicated by the multi-coloured spectacle on offer, it's under no illusions as to the insidious corruption and insane brutality unleashed on the path to the prize.
Homing in on a young contender's fight to take the champion's crown, Cosima Spender's film is a gripping, sensual riot of colour and passions.
With wonderful cinematography and pitch-perfect editing, Palio is documentary-making of the very highest order.
Like the best sports dramas, this one is a crowd-pleaser. As clichéd as this sounds, it's true; this is the kind of film that will make you want to stand up and cheer.
Palio is an exciting documentary, though I'd have liked it more if it had paid some attention to those who have levelled charges of animal cruelty against the race. If it stops short of being a tourist promotion, it's only by a nose.
Racing enthusiasts will be satisfied with the time spent in the stables and on the track, though I kept waiting for the film to push deeper into its corruption angle.
A rare kind of documentary -- muscular and refined, and a splendour for the eyes.
