Steve McQueen Documentary Looks Like The Best Thing Since ‘Le Mans’

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times – but it warrants repeating: Steve McQueen was probably the coolest man who ever lived. And of all the films he starred in and helped create, Le Mans was undoubtedly his magnum opus and the subject of his obsession.

That’s not just our opinion, but the subject of the latest documentary. Called Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans, the film chronicles the production, unfortunate commercial failure, yet timeless endurance of the project that McQueen arguably cared about most.

“The story of obsession, betrayal and ultimate vindication,” “It is the story of how one of the most volatile, charismatic stars of his generation, who seemingly lost so much he held dear in the pursuit of his dream, nevertheless followed it to the end.”

The film features interviews with McQueen’s son Chad, his ex-wife Neile Adams, and others, spliced together with archival footage to make what – from the trailer below – looks like it could be the best thing since the original film itself.

No wonder it was officially selected at Cannes. And you don’t have to wait for it to come to theaters, either, as it’s already available on DVD or to download. We know what we’ll be doing this weekend.
