    What's most rewarding, though, is that Mr. Senna speaks extensively and eloquently for himself, and reveals himself to be an eminently human hero. He's thoughtful, even philosophical, about decisions that deprive him of seemingly well-earned victories. show more

    Feels lavish by normal documentary standards and will have great appeal in such F1 hotbeds as Europe and South America. show more
