I just had the priviledge of watching this amazing film. For those who are not F1 fans it is a great way to see the Master at work. For those who are, well, it's Ayrton Senna so it's all good.



A tragic feeling will come over you by the end, but the ride is amazingly visceral with a driver that ran the ragged edge at ALL times.



As much as I care for Jackie Stewart, Alain Prost and even Schumacher, SENNA is a must see if you like planting your butt in a car of any stripe.

Bob I watched this just two days ago, it was very gripping and I felt like I had lost a friend by the time the movie was finished. And I didnt even know how it was going to end but this strange feeling came over me just in the last 20 mins or so. You are correct this is one worth watching. If you have Netflix you can find it there.

It's on Netflix, I thought it was spectacular, with tremendous in car archive footage, and great interviews. FWIW I teared up at the end. RIP Aryton.

I saw on the big screen, and I had to drive a couple hundred miles to do so. And it exceeded my expectations. I took my girlfriend who has no clue what F1 is and she thought it was fantastic. If you like auto racing, I don't know how you could not want to be an F1 fan after seeing this movie.

Didn't mean to step on an ongoing thread.

If you look at the last thread that was quoted, with a link to the first thread, I said that I had finally found a Region 1 DVD (US version) that was poorly translated by somebody, maybe of Asian origin. Do you know of a new US version? I can't imagine that this movie, which was a big hit - released in Fall of 2010 - isn't available yet on a good DVD. You don't have to be a racing fan to appreciate the beauty and honesty of this film. or the spirit of Ayrton Senna. No Hollywood movie could duplicate it.

I'd love to see more racing documentaries of this style...a movie about Gilles Villeneuve would be great...another great racing documentary I got last year is 'Jo Siffert-Live Fast, Die Young'.

Anyone else really not like Alain Prost after watching Senna?

I saw it a while back, and Prost really irked me.

Yes.I found I didn't care much for Sena either. That's the feeling I couldn't pin down, sad, but not.

As seen in the film, Prost behaved like a childish jerk during most of their rivalry, but at the end, when you see his sorrow at the funeral and learn that he became a trustee of Senna's foundation, he must have really respected the man. I think there's more there than the available footage showed.

What isn't shown in the documentary is a scene at the funeral where Senna's family pushed his girlfriend away from the coffin. Must be a whole other story there.
