Arrow Senna on Netflix Instant!

Was home sick yesterday and flipping through the Netflix Instant menu I couldn't believe what I found! Senna is available! I had seen the 3hour version on my computer but the theatrical is much more buttoned up. I watched the first hour then my chick came home and we both watched it from start to finish. Great doc!

If you haven't watched it, I highly suggest it! We've got some 3-day weekends coming up so there's no excuse.

Watched it last night. And if you don't have a streaming subscription, jalopnik says you can watch it for free:

The docu film: "Senna" was my all time fav film this year.

Although this film was a close second: 24 Hours - One Team. One Target. an insdiers look at //M Motorsport. You can watch it here...
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...4&postcount=62

And before I saw these two (sbove)films my favorite racing docu was Audi's "Truth in 24" chronicling their 2008 LeMans effort.

Just watched it. I thought the film was well done. It does phenomenal job of telling the story of one the best drivers ever. It's amazing to see the physical and mental stress you face as a driver. The in-car grainy footage is incredible, truly puts you in the drivers seat.

Easily one of the best films of the year, let alone documentaries. It's a crime that it wasn't made eligible for Oscar consideration.

If you didn't see it in theaters, you really missed out. I saw it multiple times and marked my calendar for when it came out on Apple TV and rented it. Still disappointed that it was snubbed by the Oscars but awards like those are all politics anyway.

A must see. Great movie and story telling. I attended the first showing at Landmark Theaters in San Francisco. The director introduced the movie; then conducted a Q&A after the movie.

Fantastic movie and yes Alain Prost was a dick as well as half of the F1 officials. The movie certainly teaches you that F1 is big business; kind of sad if you ask me.

I have also been watching Street Customs (West Coast Customs) episodes.
Netflix streaming is the shiz

Some say he is actually Tiff Needell.

LOL Actually, when one has seen every episode of Top Gear, I tend to search for other auto related shows to watch to tie myself over till the new season of Top Gear comes out!

For everything Top Gear and Fifth Gear related, one needs to check out this website:

http://www.finalgear.com/


Only twelve more days until TG season kicks off! And I hope you guys caught the India Holiday Special.

Getting back to the Senna Film... yes, this was one hell of a film. A copy belongs in every car lover's dvd collection.

Its also on your little screen on Virgin Atlantic Flights!

I laughed with glee when I saw that on my flight over to London back in september. My sister didnt understand my joy


Also yes to both counts, I cried like a bitch even though I knew what was going to happen when it shifted to Imola, and Prost is a dick, but what do you expect, hes french
