Yes, it was neat to have his perspective presented in footage of the whole controversy...and while I never actually hated Prost before...I almost do now, and definitely lost some respect for the French.

Was amazing to see Prost cursing Senna when he had a real runoff area where there would have been a tirewall had it not been for Ayrton's efforts the day before. Oh...and Senna definitely started that ****...a real man just finishes things like that.



I did think he was a little bit rude with Sir Jackie Stewart, but in the context I'm sure he was upset with the injustice going on in F1 at the time.



+1 for flying Rubens.

To be honest, Jackie wasn't all that nice either. :P

Yep, saw it twice. Cried the first time. Girlfriend liked it so much the first time, she actually insisted we go again when some friends asked! I was against spending the cash (Studio 35 has great beer so I never get out for under $40!). Anyway, she wants to go again before it ends next Thursday. My gal is awesome; at dinner after the movie she said "We should buy a race car. I wanna do that."

Anyway, I digress. Go see it!! Also, I couldn't find a good torrent on Pirate Bay. I want to own it. I do have an old, hacked dvd player that will play all region dvds, I may just buy it from amazon in region 2 format.

I saw it twice this past weekend. I definitely teared up the first time, the second time I was with the BROS so I had to hold it in.

Ha! Between friends and acquaintances from a local vintage motorcycle group, I ended up getting about 20 people to go to the showing we attended. I looked around at the end and there were all these dudes trying to subtly wipe a tear from their eye. Kind of amusing, and a bit touching in its own right.

It's really good, and while you know what will happen, still really sad.

So, any other really great car/driver/gearhead movies that you've seen?

I for one think that "love the beast" is really, really good, actually describing the gearhead mentality for the masses.

I completely agree...in fact I'm ashamed to even have Prost as my avatar.

I'll never disagree with you again, and I'll trade you all my good Fantasy Football players.

Prost was the only wizard Senna ever feared.

You really gotta see "The world's fastest Indian".
It's a fantastic movie, starring Anthony Hopkins as a crazed up old guy from Australia, taking his old crappy homebuilt Indian bike to the Salt Flats in Utah. (Not so crappy when he gets it going though..)

It's based on the life of Burt Munro, although it is a dramatized movie, not a documentary.

You'll never be able to pee on a tree without smiling after this

^^^Another good one. Not real historically accurate, but a good story nonetheless.

I think it was a good rivalry. Wish it hadn't started out the way it had, but I think they both handled it with class by the time it was over.

I was young enough at the time I didn't know the whole backstory. I just grew up with my first two years of watching F1 being Senna's last two, and them already well set in their rivalry.

I do think Prost, despite all that happened, still had a tremendous amount of respect for Senna. They just had different ways of going about things, and Senna never let things go.

Senna will always be THE magician in my eyes though.

Love the Beast is good. Love the moments where Jezza is ragging on muscle cars being unable to turn and Bana is getting angrier but trying to hold it in.

World's Fastest Indian is good as well. They cheesed up the plot but what do you expect?

Le Mans is still the greatest motorsport/car movie ever made, in my opinion. Not bothering to look this up, but the camera car actually finished something like 8th overall in the race, but was disqualified because they didn't follow the proper rules for driver changes and so on.

^^ Now I know who your avatar is.

I downloaded a BR rip of it. Only way to watch movies in my book is in 5.1 surround. It was pretty good, the GF even found it somewhat enjoyable. Either this movie was very poorly edited, or I got a funky copy with lots of interview scenes interjected. It would go from epic race car action with music to a music-less interview and then back without any fades. Sometimes the music was quiet and there would be a frame or two of loud noise before going to a quiet interview which would then reveal the source of the loud noise as it "continued" the movie. Other than that, I am pretty amazed by the quality of the video and audio they managed to pull from these late 80s early 90s cameras.

Thanks! I remember that I wanted to see this when it first came out, but then it just completely slipped my mind.
