| Rather amazing to watch, but not a whole lot of depth.
"Grand Prix" is a pretty spectacular film to watch and I sure wish I could see it on the big screen--especially since it was apparently shown in the Cinerama format. Not surprisingly, it won several technical Oscars in 1967. It was simply amazing how much better the camera-work and sound was than in previous racing films. However, while spectacular, it's also a film with very little depth. After all, with most of the film spent showing various races, there wasn't a whole lot of time left for character development. Now this isn't to say it's a bad film--but it's one that lacks a lot in the way of characters. The actors are more one-dimensional than you'd normally find in a film. Sadly, there were only a few times you really got a good look into a character (such as how Sarti, Yves Montand, reacted after his car ran over two teens). Lovely to look at and exquisitely made but its value as a film limits itself.

It's amazing how short my review is for a nearly three hour film, but after the picture concluded, there just wasn't much to say or add.
