Two documentaries which we implore you to watch this year have to be Senna and TT3D: Closer to the Edge. Both movies do feature motor-sport as a core area of the movie but as you’ll see when you watch them, neither are really about the sport but the people who take part in them.

By vividly recounting the TT’s legendary rivalries and the Isle of Man’s unique road racing history, this 3D feature documentary will discover why modern TT riders still risk their lives to win the world’s most dangerous race. The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is the greatest motorcycle road race in the world, the ultimate challenge for rider and machine. It has always called for a commitment far beyond any other racing event, and many have made the ultimate sacrifice in their quest for victory. A story about freedom of choice, the strength of human spirit and the will to win. It’s also an examination of what motivates those rare few, this elite band of brothers who risk everything to win. The vision of top commercials director Richard de Aragues, this promises to be one of the most thrilling films of 2011.

If you missed our interviews with Guy Martin, Ian Hutchinson and Director Richard de Aragues, you can check them out here and here but whatever you do, make sure you catch this movie at the cinema where is it currently showing.

I’ve found a cool clip on The Telegraph website which you can see below + another which we’ve been sent by CinemaNX who have made the movie.
