Summary, etc.:
The most exciting driver to ever race Formula One, the handsome, charismatic Ayrton Senna became a Brazilian national hero and an icon to racing fans worldwide. But you don't need to know the first thing about racing to be thrilled and moved by As if Kapadia's high-octane, edge-of-your-seat documentary that explores the backroom politics, bitter rivalries and the glamour of a sport that leaves no room for error. At the same time, the film is a character study of a near-mythic genius who was a man of uncompromising humanity and grace. Told in a remarkable manner, Senna uses astounding archival footage combined with original audio interviews to create a thrill-ride worthy of its daring subject.
