Honorable but eclipsed by another great project
13 September 2013 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Whether you've seen Asif Kapadia's spectacular and groundbreaking documentary "Senna" or not, "The Right to Win" will always be a minor experience in several levels. It's an honorable project on the legacy of the greatest F1 driver of all time, the late Ayrton Senna, and a good film as well but the presentation lacks enthusiasm, lacks of massive archive footage and it's often too technical about racing, which is a problem for those who don't know much about it, or aren't so interested on the subject, and prefer to focus their attention more on the man and his accomplishes.

The format given to it - the tiring talking head exposure - is troubled because the primary object of view is largely reduced by people talking of him instead of showing him, the races he won or lost and even the final tragic moment which is completely left out (the interviewed talk about it but that's it). "Senna" is a far superior movie because it employs (at my view, never or rarely seen before) a far more fascinating technique of interviewed people only on voice-overs while the images of all of his races are exhibited. It was a richer and exciting film even for those who aren't fans of the sport.

But "The Right to Win" has its moments while interviewing less famous persons who knew Ayrton such as his physical trainer; the pilot who always joined him on his private plane, among others. They were all deeply touched by his presence and simplicity, and like many of us, they miss him very much.

It's a good film, quite special but it's the other film's impression that prevents me from giving a higher score. 6/10
