I haven't really properly watched it all the way through...On the whole I really have no interest in racing movies, although Rush was pretty good.

I have seen both Grand Prix and Le Mans. And both are pretty ok. From nostalgic point of view, both movies are essential.

Grand Prix really has the feel of a movie from the times. Slower pace story telling. But the racing scenes are utterly terrific.

Le Mans is unique in a lot of ways. Racing aside, I can see how movie buffs would find it interesting for its own story telling method.

With ABBA playing in the background too. Could this video get any more Swedish?
