Well another quiet Sunday night with me and Netflix. I have decided to watch the documentary called Senna. I know its about Ayrton Senna and F1 racing but know very little of the story other than that. I have created a commentary as I watch the movie which you can read, though it won't make much sense if you haven't seen it. I will post this story some time tomorrow after I edit it a bit more.
0:15 - sort of a F&F intro feel to me
0:30 - Oh jeeze lots of subtitles
2:00 - I want a shifter kart.
3:00 - Ayrton is in an F1 car already, that didn't take long!
3:28 - Monaco in 1984, probably no one doing coke there

37:22 - Senna seems to be blamed for causing the crash and gets suspended. Horse dicks!
38:33 - Senna's back in 1990, shit starts flying between him and now Ferrari driver Prost. Extreme leap in film quality for some reason

1:09:29 - Senna seems like a happy dude, partying like a boss! Autographing boobs and everything!
1:11:55 - Said he was not complete yet
1:12:38 - Renault has car that auto balances in the corners, McLaren doesn't, Senna is at a huge disadvantage, building some tension here, oh goodie!
1:15:09 - Prost wins in the fancy Renault car, and retires. Little wimp.
1:16:39 - McLaren and Senna are done, kind of makes the Mp4-12c look silly now.
1:18:37 - F1 outlaws all the fancy tech at start of new season; no stabilization, traction control, or dynamic brakes for you

1:39:00 - Brazil has lost a hero, millions on the route where Senna is taken
1:39:57 - Very emotional funeral, lots of cut-aways to his past achievements
1:41:02 - Goes back to Senna answering a question about who the best drivers he has raced. His answer is back in karting before the politics and money
1:42:03 - Information about Senna's charities and his legacy in racing
1:42:49 - Credits
Overall a pretty good racing movie/doc about someone who I knew very little about before this. I have to think his death at a young age so long ago could be why we don't hear about him as much now. Quite the talent and left a huge legacy that has made F1 safer today. The mark he has left on Brazil is also a big part of this film. Hope you enjoyed my commentary of the movie! Its a good watch for you OPPOnauts
Feel free to let me know what you think!
