At the heart of the gripping documentary "Senna" lies a rivalry born for the movies. Director Asif Kapadia's film plays like a narrative feature, juicy and alive, with enough kinetic excitement to hook the Formula One-ignorant (me, I knew next to nothing about the subject), let alone racing fans worldwide. The subject is three-time Grand Prix world champion, the Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna. He and his rival, the Frenchman Alain Prost, drove for the same team for a key part of their respective, overlapping and fantastically competitive careers.
