      Really enjoyed this film on Friday night. It was nothing groundbreaking in terms of telling Senna's story, however the footage, interviews and never-before-seen footage of drivers briefings and time in the paddock were very cool to see. Don't expect to be blown away by the race footage...there is some great stuff, but you can find a lot of great Senna highlights on youtube.

      I did feel like they could have spent a bit more time on Imola and Senna's behavior after the Ratzenberger wreck. From what I've read in biographies/online he was quite outspoken before the start of the race about the track safety, etc. They didn't really touch on that during the Imola segment.

      Anyway, I look forward to seeing it again..either in theater or on blu-ray.

      Saw it yesterday in Brooklyn, saw it in the back of a bar on small projection screen! Great movie, it sucks that you know how its going to end though

      I have to say, i was expecting a little more at the end from it - you know how when top gear did the tribute they interviewed all sorts of drivers about him? I was hoping for something like that. Maybe its the fanboy in me but i hoped they would roll credits over alonso talking about senna.

      Saw this opening night in NYC. Truly moving. They had F1 cars outside the theater the following day, and have been giving out posters and rain jackets. I should have waited a day.

      Good to hear, I plan on going one night this week. Doubt any F1 cars will still be out though.

      Just got back from the 9:30 show in Philly. It was truly well done... Enjoyed ever second of it. My wife, who is not at all an F1 fan, also really enjoyed it.

      I really liked Senna's response to the question posed to him at the end of the film as to who his favorite driver was to race against.

      Sorta surprising, huh?

      I agree, what an incredible movie/ story. I didn't know about the controversial finishes in '90 or '91.
      I'm still blown away by the magnitude of this movie.
      It was so well told by the director.
      It was really interesting to see his body language during the Imola weekend. As if the spirit that always seemed to ride with him was not in him. Spooky.

      Makes me wanna go back and watch/ read more about those times in F1!!!

      So glad that i made the trip to Chicago and back to see it (2 1/2 hours each way!)

      Was so cool to sit in that packed theater with all F1 fans....

      I just got back from watching the matinee here in Baltimore. It opened during the Grand Prix weekend - pretty cool, although I didn't realize it was here until this morning

      I loved it of course, but I expected... something different? It wasn't exactly a love-letter to Ayrton. It really showed him as the way he was (or perhaps, the filmmakers were good at showing him as somewhat one-sided). Determined, single-minded, human and - a surprise for me - somebody who also seemed wracked with self-doubt. In almost none of the scenes could he been seen as somebody having fun in life. Even in the the scenes in the boat relaxing with his family, on the beach - he seemed self-consumed all the time. They don't hide his dark side in this film. They really seem to accentuate it. Or, he was dark all the time? He knocks Prost out on the first lap in Japan 91 - a famous and dangerous stunt he later admitted too doing on purpose - and you can see it all over his face: "I probably should have raced him straight out and won this title fair and square... but I chose revenge and the dark side. I have to live with that now".

      I feel like there is so much more to each little episode (and in many cases I know that there is), but it isn't told in this film.

      All that said, this is a must-see for racing fans.

      I'm hoping that there is more to each little episode in the uncut version...which is something like 2h 44m.

      What i found interesting is his struggles with the politics in F1. Prost and Balestre buddy, buddies; the way the pole position got switched before that race. Some people like Prost could maneuvre well inside F1, others like Senna were different animals. Difficulty playing the game.
      I can relate to that well. Really liked the movie.

      Finally caught this movie (2x, actually), and it was probably the hardest thing to watch... It was dark, and completely sullen how he spoke of his future. I found myself choked up more than once...over a race driver flick...

      I miss that man.... Senna will always be the best....even with such a short enigmatic career

      Fantastic documentary....
