Set during the summer of 1957, the pic finds ex-Formula 1 racer Enzo Ferrari in crisis. Bankruptcy stalks the company he and his wife, Laura, built from nothing 10 years earlier. Their tempestuous marriage struggles with the mourning for their one son. Ferrari struggles with the acknowledgement of another. His drivers’ lust to win pushes them out to the edge. He wagers all in a roll of the dice on one race, the treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy, the iconic Mille Miglia.
Michael Mann has to be one of the most underrated directors in the game right now. Just look at the top end of his lineup.
Some big time BANGERS, man. Not to mention the fact that he made maybe the best commercial ever made….
Anything he does will have my ass in the theater day one. And after the success of 'Ford v Ferrari' (one of the greatest dad movies ever made), I am all in on this subject matter. Having an elite actor like Adam Driver at the wheel is just the cherry on top.
Outside of the actual movie, god damn was this a good trailer. Like YP, I am just a sucker for a well cut trailer that is able to draw audience members in. Mann, however, will deliver. I will always have faith in him to deliver a dudes rock banger.
