The IFI showed the trailer a month or so ago, so I'm pretty confident they'll be showing it. Looked freaking amazing too. The guy was not human, he was something else.

It's supposed to open at the IFI on 3 June, probably in Cineworld too.
Saw it yesterday. It's very good, and I'm saying that as someone who sees no difference between watching Formula One and cars going round a roundabout for three hours. It deserves a bigger audience than just F1 heads, hope it gets it.

I'd go if I knew of somewhere showing it.

I'm not a racing fan, but enjoyed it. I liked some of the decisions the filmmakers made - like keeping all interview footage voice only and keeping intensely focused on the archive footage. My racing fan friend pointed out it didn't say much about his colourful personal life, but we both sort of found that a strength - kept the film focused on the story.
My one problem with it, and one that definitely holds it back from being something special, is that it felt one-sided. This was simply eulogising at times - it was largely uncritical of Senna. Kind of like the Bill Hicks documentary recently, it seems like it's preaching to the converted at times, holding Senna up as a hero. There's nothing wrong with that, and he certainly seems like a damn good driver, but the result is a documentary that merely seems informative rather than insightful.
It's an entertaining portrait of a fascinating individual, but tbh didn't think it was much more than that.

Its also going to be showing in Cork for one night at least (the 21st June), Dungarvan, Donegal and a few places in the north. It will probably roll out to a few other venues as well.
