Senna (2010)

PG-13 106 min. An awesome movie documentary on Formula One race car driver Ayrton Senna.

This movie covers Formula One racing from 1984 to 1994.

And of course there is a rivalry, with a fellow driver, Alain Prost.

Senna had a strong belief in God, and strong moral convictions. He felt the closest to God when he raced.

He was deeply admired by his fans and respected by his piers. In 2009 he was voted "greatest Formula 1 driver of all time."

He was also outspoken regarding racing safety. In 1994 he tried to organize Grand Prix Drivers' Association in order to more effectively address racing safety.

On 1 May 1994, Ayrton Senna was killed after his car crashed into a concrete barrier while he was leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix in Italy.

Incredibly, this documentary movie was created entirely with archive racetrack footage and home video clips provided by the Senna family.

Bottom line, Senna is a great documentary and a great movie.
