A cut above your standard motor sport documentary: it possesses a sensitivity and empathy not normally associated with the field, and the talking heads provide a jolt of human connection.
What emerges is a fascinating and deeply personal family history, though die-hard petrol-heads may wish for a little more focus on the racetrack.
Williams ... is charismatic and charming. Morgan Matthews's absorbing and moving documentary also reveals him as maddeningly self-centred, obsessed with motor-racing to the exclusion of all else - but brilliant nonetheless.
The domestic saga is of general interest, but the film is still chiefly for a car-loving audience.
Racing fans are sure to enjoy a history that takes in Patrick Head's innovative car designs in the late 1970s and the 1986 rivalry between Nigel Mansell and Nelson Piquet.
The film is let down by an overlong running time and a prurient attempt to crowbar an emotional response from the taciturn Williams.
Frank Williams has his legacy well and truly besmirched in this highly unflattering and very juicy portrait.
This is a valuable addition to this year's 40th anniversary celebrations of Williams Grand Prix.
The title of Morgan Matthews's insightful film doesn't just refer to Frank Williams, the boss of the Williams Formula One team. This film transcends the remit of the sports documentary by also focusing on his late wife Virginia.
An affectionate but unflinching portrait of a family consumed by its dedication to Formula 1, thanks in main to its seemingly unstoppable patriarch, Sir Frank Williams.
It doesn't need to zoom around the tracks at 230mph - it patiently leafs back though a family photo album, rightly trusting in the human contours of the story more than the aerodynamics.
Sports documentaries tend to be very predictable. Williams surprises us by coming at its subject matter from an unlikely perspective.
