Sports documentaries are usually super hit or miss. Some just fill the air with simple storytelling and a type of play-by-play chronicling that comes across as uninspired as a bottom ticker update. Other sports documentaries just really get to you, man. Like goose bumps, I-can’t-believe-that-really-happened-style get to you. SENNA definitely falls in the latter category. The film is a study of the life of famous F1 racer Ayrton Senna. It’s already won awards at Sundance and the LA Film Festival. SENNA is setting box office records in the UK and it’s generating some real energy here in the States. Here’s the trailer:

The film hasn’t reached its full release yet. It’s already playing in New York, LA, DC, San Francisco, Berkeley, Irvine, San Rafael, Cambridge, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, Miami and Philly.  Here are the remaining release dates:

I totally love this series, and I try to catch them whenever they’re on. The U and Pony Excess are two that are worth watching again with all the scandalous Miami football headlines making the rounds. If you prefer gut-wrenching stories that’ll make any dude’s eyes water, check out Without Bias or The Two Escobars. If you enjoy playing fantasy sports, Silly Little Game is a must-see.
