Jack deserved better than this meandering mess!

I was really looking forward to this documentary and settled in to watch it but it soon became clear it was going to be hard and tedious watch. I don't the makers quite knew which direction they wanted to take with it so we end up with a mash of clips and styles that just doesn't work.

We get animated cartoon segments, clips of Paul Newman talking not about Jack but racing in general and quite possibly the saddest part are the pieces featuring the very elderly Ron Tauranac, John Surtess and Stirling Moss (the latter seems completely confused about what is going on and is only there to tell us his name and that he drove all types of cars in all types of races). I don't know if it was the directors intent to show these fine gentlemen in their worst light but they all look moments away from death.

There are clips of Jack and others racing but most of these are shown on a tiny Tv screen in the middle of the screen that makes it practically impossible to tell what is going on.

Then to round it all off are all the nonsense ramblings of whoever Grayson Perry. It is never shown what his connection is with Jack or even with motorsport. I did google the guy and it just says he does weird art and likes to cross dress, is there anybody alive less qualifified to talk about Jack Brabham.

If you don't mind sitting through a rambling mess then give it go but if you want to see how a documentary should be done about a racing giant then watch the McLaren one instead.

Truly awful and depressing watch.

Such a disappointment!

I was so looking forward to this release, Jack Brabham being such a legend in the field. He was the first and only man to win both the Formula 1 World Driver's Championship AND the Formula 1 World Manufacturers Championship in 1966. This had never been done before and will never be done again....absolutely unique! He deserved so much more that this tripe.

Whilst I hold both David and Geoff Brabham in very high regard for their own outstanding accomplishments in motor racing, I would be disappointed if they had any idea what the makers of this so-called documentary were going to produce.

It seems to me that the producers/director were focused on trying to be 'smart' or 'artistic'; they were trying too hard and missed the point entirely. The animations were of poor quality and totally inappropriate to the subject matter. The bloody 'burning racing driver' walking through the bush??? The burning bush shed?? Ron Dennis hit the nail on the head when he said to the interviewers who were off screen, "Guys, guys, you gotta be professional!" as he scolded them for wandering around and distracting him whilst he was talking.

Who the hell is Grayson Perry? Poor Ron Tauranac seemed to barely tolerate what he was being asked to do and, Paul Newman.....??? And why did they use a soundtrack and film clips of Stevie Wright from 1975? Jack had been retired for 5 years!

On the other hand, Jackie Stewart is always worth listening to, Doug Nye was great, Ron Dennis was interesting and Tony Davis was very good. There was some very good and interesting information presented in the production but it was interrupted by clips and music and animations that did nothing but distract and annoy....they were just wrong!

If you want to learn about Jack Brabham and his era of motor racing, this is a poor place to go. Log on to YouTube and search for Jack, there are plenty of very informative videos about Jack and Ron there, that are much more satisfying.

This DVD was such a huge missed opportunity to do honour to a great and inspiring man.

Disappointing at best

I was hoping for so much more following on the heals of the recent Maclaren and Senna documentaries but this was a very poor attempt at a documentary of a racing ledged. The editing was very poor with constant scenes of a burning barn and tv's in a field. I really could not understand how any of that related to telling the story of J. Brabham. The edits were super fast maybe to appeal to a younger audience but then what younger audiences would appreciate a documentary on Jack? More time should have been spent on Jack as a driver that accomplished so much in his career - 3 time world champion is no small accomplishment but this film is a very poor representation of this amazing achievement.
