1/2 of the movie deserves 10 stars
13 January 2020 | by heavypicklesandketchupSee all my reviews

This is about following a racer, for the most part, through ups and downs of two seasons. The name is horrible, as a former (winning) racer, "My Need" really? This starts out really strong with a good storyline and real coverage/vintage footage. Then nose dives. Anytime you get opinions about racing from a psychologist or someone who hasn't raced it's bad. They clearly don't understand and their words degrade the rest of the movie. If you want to understand racing mentality, LISTEN to Colin Edwards, he's telling it right. Still don't understand why the TT portion is there, just drivel commentary. Ends good and wraps up nicely. I don't know what a race fan is going to think but definitely a let down for racers.
