watched Senna at the Shattuck today in Berkeley with Lodelle! I didn’t know what to expect; all I knew was that it is an independent film about a famous Formula1 race car driver, but it was so much more than that.
Ayrton Senna was so easily likable; even for me, someone who doesn’t know much about racing. He had so much confidence in his skills that it became so damn admirable. He could not settle for anything less than first place.
Shot as a documentary, I was surprised by how much detailed footage were used! The footages were from ‘94 and earlier and yet, some interviews looked hd! Impressive.
Lodelle and I were talking about how unfortunately, it takes a tragic event to bring forth the extra effort, precaution, and thoughtfulness that should have been present in the first place. Even though something tragic already happened the day before, Senna stayed true to himself and didn’t back out, despite his fear and worries… The world definitely lost an amazing world champion.
Honey, thank you so much for taking me to see such a great film. I was truly moved =)
