It's a great making-of tale about a very mediocre movie.
If you see only one 44-years-later postmortem on a critical and commercial misfire this season, it might as well be "Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans."
"Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans" is an interesting documentary because it approaches its well-known subject from an unexpected angle.
Filmmakers Gabriel Clarke and John McKenna interweave abundant archival footage and audio seamlessly.
It doesn't really succeed in conveying McQueen's great passion for auto racing. In truth, it mostly makes him seem like a jerk - but cinephiles might enjoy it as a case study of moviemaking gone wrong.
We've seen many an insider doc about films destroyed by their creators' chutzpah (Overnight, Lost in La Mancha), but what's most wrenching here is McQueen's displays of vulnerability and tenderness.
This film reveals more about Hollywood film-making than McQueen.
A fascinating view of a doomed film.
A passionate tale where the directors know just how much to give us to feel the passion of its main subject. [Full review in Spanish]
A film to exorcise an insecure, violent, unpredictable, angry, seductive, and full of suicidal tendencies Hollywood icon. [Full review in Spanish]
The story of one of the most high octane ego trips in Hollywood history. [Full review in Spanish]
With archival films and frank interviews with people involved like his first wife and his son, this is a fascinating look at what unchecked ego can do to a gifted person.
