JOY REVIEW

Senna is a joint production between Universal Studios and ESPN, and believe it or not, ESPN has done some terrific documentaries – and this is one of them. This is about a Formula One racecar driver that I had never heard of, but then I’m not exactly up on the Formula One racecars. He is from Brazil at a time in the 80s when Brazil was going through a great deal of upset and turmoil.  H was kind of an upper class guy that was really the hope of Brazil. He was a gutsy racer. Some of the fun of this documentary is they have a camera in the 80s in his car, so you’re actually in the car with him when he’s racing and I’m not giving away very much when I tell you he won the world championship three times! You get to know him and his enemies and his friends, and find out a whole lot of behind the scenes stuff that went on with him. I’m not giving away any endings, although I sort of figured it out from the first 10 minutes, but I’m not going to give it away even if they may have- I tend not to tell secrets in my reviews. I would give this four and a half stars.
