If you're a fan of Formula One, you'll enjoy seeing this footage on the big screen, but unlike the great sports documentaries (Hoop Dreams, When We Were Kings), this one offers little to those not already versed in the subject.
A compelling story still to be told, but political maneuvering within the sport and the one-upsmanship, technological tinkering, corner-cutting, negligence or cheating that possibly caused Senna's death, are hinted at but given short shrift.
Racing emerges as both central and somehow irrelevant, a conduit for a tale of a man struggling to achieve some sort of grace, and crashes that could easily belong to a rubbernecking TV show are instead loaded with tragic significance.
