Brazillian Ayrton Senna was a humble Formula One Race Driver who conquered his arena and died tragically in a horrific accident in 1994. Senna presents a portrait of a morose, thoughtful superstar athlete, much different from the kinds we're accustomed to today. It achieves the great feat of presenting a documentary consisting entirely of footage, devoid of lame talking heads expousing their worthless opinions. It does somewhat lose pole position somewhere towards the end but the documentary is a wonder in its own way and it is kind of a shame that Formula One Racing still doesn't have nonfans convinced on merits of its sport.
