If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Here is my review of this F1 drama about one of the great sporting rivalries: http://www.entertainmentfuse.com/movies/movies-reviews/rush-review-....
I hope you enjoy.
You're absolutely right when you say that a longer cut must exist; there are a few scenes, particularly earlier on in the '76 season that are heavily glossed over, but what we get instead, is more insight into our main characters, which I think probably makes up for it; these broad brushstrokes never ruined the film for me.
The only thing that bothered me about your review was that grammatically it's a bit of a rush job. "Lauda is a serious minded, extremely determined, technically astute and is able..." Lauda is a what? Is he an elephant? A racing driver? :)
In such a disappointing year, Rush is probably one of the best films I've seen this year. Daniel Bruhl needs awards.
