This can't be echoed enough. It's also available on DVD for pretty cheap, I picked it up a while ago and have already watched it several times.

We were lucky and got to see it on the big screen at the Enzian in Orlando. Wayne Taylor talked to the crowd before the movie. It was a very cool evening.

And a PS: I mean "we" as in the citizens of Central Florida, not the GRM staff. It was open to all.

Indeed, I was there as well. The Enzian made the screening awesome what with the comfy seating and all. I actually think it was the first time I've seen a film there where no one's been loud and drunk...I guess it was that captivating. I'm so glad I got to see it on the big screen. I believe it was showing in Jacksonville as well.

The Blu-Ray with the extended version adds a bunch of perspective from Prost which is good as well.

I'm amazed how much footage they had in just the theatrical release. Today, you figure everyone has an HD movie camera in their pocket. Go back 20 years, and things were different.

Also note the differences in image quality and stability we have now, even with GoPro or Contour - style cameras. I would not be surprised to find out most of this footage came from Brazilian TV. They must've shadowed him 24/7 during his career. I wonder if someone was planning a documentary of his career, then abandoned it when he was killed.

I think I was most surprised by the footage from the drivers meeting. Sure, you expect good on-track footage, but the stuff from the drivers meeting was really good. Like, who was in there with real equipment? And good point about someone shadowing him. Maybe that was the case.

No one has been killed since Senna and I would have loved to be the guy who jacked Prost nose all crooked and that FIA president needed a belt also .

I got my girlfriend's mom to watch it. Don't know how that happened. She doesn't care for cars or racing but actually enjoyed the Senna doc.

I, personally, wasn't a fan of Senna growing up, but I didn't influence her opinion of him.

I know I have posted this on the board before but... what goes better as a prequel to a documentary of an 80's F1 legend than a documentary of a pair of 1970's racing legends?

When Playboy's Ruled the World

Senna could drive but I don't think he partied like James or Barry :P
