Senna- July 15th

Senna (2010)
English- Documentary
Rated “PG-13”
Runtime- 106 min.
dir. Asif Kapadia
 

This is one of those flicks that I managed to catch wind of because of that documentary stuff with Netflix.

Story/Writing: 2/2

An amazing biopic portrait of one of the most famous professional drivers in the history of the sport. Great directing, too.

Acting: 1.5/2

Real emotions captured through the use of archival footage combined with current interviews.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

As good as news footage will afford.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Ditto above.

Misc: 2/2

Oh, I guess I forgot to mention the subject matter.  Ayrton Senna was one of the most decorated Formula One drivers to ever compete, the film covers his professional racing career , both on and off the track.

VERDICT: 8.5/10

Really good, you don’t need to care about racing to enjoy it.
