Schumacher [2021]★★★

To miss a documentary about 7 time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher would be the equivalent of skipping a Martin Scorsese film. It might not be as compelling as 2011’s “Senna”, but it’s still a phenomenal look at Schumi’s career, from his time with Benetton in the early 90’s, to his unforgettable years at Ferrari. As someone who grew up in the 90’s, I remember very well his rivalry with the likes of Jacques Villeneuve and Mika Hakkinen. But even the most avid McLaren fan at the time knew that Schumacher was special. And this documentary is a testament to that. Fans might be looking for more updates about his current medical condition, but the movie doesn’t really focus much on that. Instead, it shows us what truly made him tick. If you’re a fan of Schumacher or just curious about Formula One in general, you can’t possibly miss this documentary. It’s a rollercoaster ride from start to finish.
