As personal as Rowan gets (which still isn't much)
Is this a good car documentary? I don't know. It's way too dated to function in that sense unless as a time capsule (these new 1990 models look silly now). Much of what is discussed still applies today. But that's not what makes this film so important.
What really makes this special is that this may be the closest we'll ever get to Rowan Atkinson's private life. He's kept it sealed away for decades, but he allows us all a teeny, tiny peek in this film. I won't spill too much of the details, but there is much to learn about Rowan from his relationship with cars. It's not much, but it's something.
Anyone who is a fan of Rowan Atkinson as an actor and a person *must* see this film.
