Sometimes it is great to loosen up and enjoy good cinema. As far as movies go, I am quite omnivorous and the most important part of any movie is just that it works in the way it is filmed and has a good story. Some movies are the sort that make you really long for the day premiere, others can be a suprise feast to the eyes and the ears.
As an avid Formula one fan I was well aware of the fact that there was a sort of semi-documentary film being made of the great F1 world champion James Hunt and his rivalry with another great driver and three times world champ Niki Lauda. The movie premiered a while back but I had the possibility to go and see it a bit late. On the positive side this meant a half-empty theater and thus excellent seats and a sort of peaceful enjoyment of the movie. I am not a big fan of 100% filled movie theaters where you might just end up getting pop corn thrown at you or have a huge fellow enjoying the movie in front of you and making it difficult to see the whole screen. 😉
Anyway, I believe this movie to be one of the top 3 movies of the 2013 year. A lot of drama and suspense as well as beautiful cinemagraphy. Great acting by all the main players and the director has made a splendid job in pulling it altogether. Definately worth the 2hrs.
