I really liked it. It has an expertly executed story arc. I've seen a lot of Netflix docs, and documentaries in general where the material is more scattered (but can still be entertaining), or they run out of material and somehow drag on for another 20 minutes. But this was full of compelling stories and people from beginning to end while maintaining a coherent central topic. It had enough that I could imagine other docs spawning off details like why American car companies were turning against racing, definitely a story can be told about driver safety. I loved how much footage existed. A lot of historical documentaries seemed to be bogged down with little more than photographs. We see the real cars, we see the real races, and we're hearing from the actual drivers. I have no interest in car racing but it was great as story beyond the specific topic.
I didn't know where it was going but I loved it all the way. It's funny and has heart. Good to see Eddie Murphy back.
Smart and funny. Except for the hilariously 80s intro, holds up.
