    So glad Bifa´s award for best documentary went to Senna (I´m still not over the fact that this amazing documentary was not short-listed for Oscar´s).

    Think it missed out on the Oscar 15 shortlist as played too much like a vanity project for the Senna family. Senna was amazing but also had his flaws which is the interesting part rather like Ali in When We Were Kings. Felt it also portrayed Prost like an cartoon villain making the film feel very unbalanced.
