"Diego Maradona", a documentary about the greatest soccer player of all time, focuses on Maradona's role in playing for Napoli, before Maradona's appearance a small, hated and not very great team in Italy, and Argentina in several world cups. I especially loved the original use of sound effects in old footages of Maradona playing his best games. Never seen anything like it in a documentary. Even more interesting than Maradona's personal ups and downs was to observe the changing behaviour of his Italian fans and followers. This film should be studied in social science classes. A true work of art. Where I saw it, the movie even received ovations by its end, something I've never seen happening for a documentary. It deserves to win the Academy Award for best documentary in 2020.
