LE MANS ’66 – UK title,
FORD V FERRARI – USA title.
How do you make a 24-hour car race interesting? The answer here, only sporadically. Bar Christian Bale's lines, the dialogue is basic. The film evolves from the concerning to the almost coldly critical. The concept had potential not matching the end result.
