It’s a film that makes you ponder on the big things – life, death, courage, love, sport, masculinity, the thrill of danger.
Jennifer Selway - Daily Express
Footage used in the film is raw and stunning... It is a fine study of risk and a timely reminder that tragedy can only be romanticised by the passing decades and if it happens elsewhere… Loved the film, quite traumatic but amazing footage. The editor has done a great job.
Rick Broadbent - The Times
There have been several documentaries about the motor racing world in recent years. This is one of the best. Director Darryl Goodrich and his team make excellent use of archive material. We hear voice-overs from interviewees but don’t see anyone’s faces until close to the end – and Goodrich is therefore able to preserve the spell that we are really back in this era.
Geoffrey Macnab - Independent
This slick doc tells the stories of two of the team’s finest ’50s racers, Brits Mike Hawthorn and Peter Collins. Blending archive footage, contemporary interviews and dramatic reconstructions, the film reminds us how dangerous the sport could be.
Tom Dawson - Total Film
A very well edited film that keeps its tension nicely taut while the story unfolds.
Meredith Taylor - Filmoria
It certainly captures the ‘live fast, die young’ glamour of the bygone Formula One scene. After all, no one lived faster.
Larushka Ivan-zadeh - Metro
What emerges is a portrait that conveys the gut-wrenching horror of the era, but also its human essences and the passions that drove F1's pioneers.
Matthew Knight – CNN
For me the shot selection and sequence pacing demonstrated by movie editor Paul Trewartha seals the deal – on his part a brilliantly crafted piece of work.
Doug Nye – Goodwood Road and Racing
Ferrari: Race to Immortality tells their story using some exceptional archive footage and with the help of an array of experts and witnesses. It’s a fascinating ride through one of the most exciting periods of the sport.
Rob Aldam - Backseat Mafia
Director Daryl Goodrich and screenwriter Rupert Bush portray the breadth of that intensity in all its glory and nail-biting anxiety, mixing together beautiful cuts of archive footage with some present-day film magic.
Alexander Corona - The Upcoming
With footage unearthed from private archives and never seen in public, the film scores handsomely
