    A very remarkable, very touching documentary. I've never truly known his whole story but i watched it last night and from his crash on till the end of documentary,@30 mins left i cried uncontrollably till the end of show. I have no shame in admitting that i cried.

    No I still havent seen it :( It was not shown here in the movie theaters for some reason (I blame left wing politicians who are against motorsport).

    Me too. Really great documentary. I was too young for the Senna years so it was really nice to learn about this great man.

    I loved the Prost-Senna fights. Great documentary indeed (It was on theaters in Turkey last year)

    Also that sentence was great: 'The best decision is my decision :D '

    Without this documentary i could'nt have seen Senna's time as i was a very little child back then. Thanks to producers. Also the music with the death of Senna was too saddenning. I had chills.

    By the way anyone have the epic music when Prost-Senna duels in Suzuka? (The Thrilling Music With the violin)

    I need to watch it sometime. Hiro, I also cried for Senna when I was 14 in '04. I cry for him when I mention him. What sucks for me is that I was four years old and very autistic so I never got to watch him race. :frown:

    I watched the film yesterday and at many points, I was a bit moved, especially after Prost crashed into Senna intentionally. And I fully understand Senna did the same thing to Prost. And the amount of bad luck was really huge in the Senna's accident, but it happens (especially in road racing) and as a racing driver, Senna knew very well that there is a constant danger. Great driver, great personality, it's a shame he didn't live until these days.

    I watched some sort of leaked "beta" version of the movie, it has much less senna clips, long interviews and the sound volumes were badly synced, yet i watched the whole thing and i went from not knowing anything about senna to have big respect for him and i think his skills in terms of handling a car and knowing what it takes to be fastest is really great

    After watching the movie again I found this interview with Terry Fullerton, the racing driver praised by Senna:
