"In his acclaimed Formula One documentary Senna, film-maker Asif Kapadia found a way into the soul of racing driver Ayrton Senna through his longstanding rivalry with his antithetical nemesis Alain Prost. Despite having no prior interest in (or knowledge of) F1, I found Senna both informative and engaging – a riveting portrait of a man whose high-speed achievements had previously meant nothing to me."


"The opening of Diego Maradona cuts right to the chase: with a lo-fi set-piece of the footballer driving through Naples the day he signed for the club — the high point of his galloping, giddying rise in the beautiful game. But, as becomes clear: not everything about the game, or those who play it, is beautiful."


"‘A bit of cheating and a lot of genius.” That’s how someone in this film summarises the Argentinian football megastar Diego Maradona after his triumphant performance in the 1986 World Cup, and it seems fair."
