10 Great Auto Racing Movies
Ref: Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
This movie was pure unadulterated garbage. We threw the DVD in the garbage.
Your review of Grand Prix sounds like you read the liner notes on the CD case. The plot of the movie is actually pretty close to what happens in real life, to people (men and women) that had a passion for racing and a job in formula one in 1968. They lived raced and watched their friends die on the track. Maybe you weren’t a race fan then but I was. And then become a race driver, partly because of this film. This film is by far the best ever film on motorsport. Period.
I understand that this is a list of fictional or "based on a true story" movies, a documentary that all racing fans should see is Senna. He is the GOAT when it comes to F1 and IMO is a better story than Lauda and Hunt
