Senna by Asif Kapadia

Sundance 2011 winner, documentary on the career of Brazilian Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna.

Given I am not an F1 fan or connoisseur, part of the film reminded a video game to me.

Also, it is one of those documentaries where you are aware of the manipulation of building the tension. Obviously everybody knows what is the end of the story, and to that climax, we are led at the astronomical speed of Formula 1.

Definitely worth a watch if only to admire and appreciate the amount of footage that the film authors had to go through to cut a convincing story.
