The cinematic qualities of Ayrton Senna's rise and fall won't come as a surprise to Formula One fans, but for the rest of us this extraordinary documentary is a revelation.

Constructed entirely of TV and home-movie footage that was shot during the Brazilian champion's glory days, it's a riveting, intensely moving tragedy that beats any Hollywood sports movie for intimate drama and stomach-tightening thrills.
