Steve deserved better
18 July 2018 | by HrutkaPalSee all my reviews

As my favourite actor, I'm always interested in seeing retroperspectives on his life, even though mostly I'm aware of his biography.

Interviews with his son and his ex-wives surely show an insight of his life as close as possible. Problem is, when like 1/3 of the movie is filled with talking heads, which have nothing to say. People like Pierce Brosnan, Gary Oldman might be classic actors, but never met McQueen. Gets even more absurd, when models like Marisa Miller or Zoe Bell talk about him. I honeslty hardly believe they watched more than 4 films of him,so what do I care about them talking about Steve?

Even bigger problem is what they talk, because it's as cliché as it might get. "He was the coolest / Nothing beats him / He wants to be the #1. / If you have 2 people on the screen, everyone watched McQueen etc. "

Get film historians, directors to talk about him, not some people, who might look good on the IMDB page, but have nothing to say.

Also his filmography was very rushed. We all know, his passion for racing was immense, but for me, it got way bigger screen-time as needed.

There are better documentaries about McQueen out there, watch this at the end.
