STEVE MCQUEEN – THE MAN & LE MANS REVIEWED
“Steve McQueen – The Man & Le Mans” takes us through the troubled production of “Le Mans”. While the famous 24 hour race had been attempted to be filmed before, McQueen was putting insane pressures on the crew to get it right. The film takes pre-existing footage alongside newly uncovered footage from the McQueen Archives to create the final word on what happened. While it’s not quite “Overnight” or “Lost in La Mancha”, you can see a film that was close to dying on the vine. For casual McQueen fans, a lot of the material will be quite new and surprising. If you have the opportunity, pair it with “Le Mans” and learn something tonight.
