Or about its danger, if you're the glass half empty sort. The title is '1' (as in 'one'). Due out sometime in 2014. According to Autosport, (sorry, full story is in pay version only) it is of the documentary variety, focusing on F1's crashes, especially the fatal ones. Makes a big deal of role the of Professor Sid Watson and treats Lauda's refusal to continue racing at Japan in 1976 as a moment that changed the sport forever. Deputy news editor Sam Tremayne calls the film compelling, sensitive, powerful. Should be worth a look.

I also heard last year there was another film in the works dealing with James Hunt, but it seems to have disappeared when "Rush" was released. Maybe Ron Howard stole its thunder.
