Senna (2010)

Director: Asif Kapadia. 106 min. Rated PG-13. UK. Documentary/Biography.

The life story of Ayrton Senna, the Brazilian Formula One race-car driver, who competing against French world champion Alain Probst, became a 3-time world champion and national hero at a young age, but whose "live-fast, die-young" ambitious lifestyle ended in tragedy. It's not only about race cars. It's about when you're at the top of your game, any game, ... you just can't stop. Interestingly, footage of interviews done at the time show Brazilians saying he is Brazil's only source of joy. Brazilians are either too poor, or too rich.
