Diego Maradona (2019), dir. Asif Kapadia
Asif Kapadia follows his amazing documentaries Senna and Amy with another portrait of a flawed genius – Diego Maradona.
Focusing on his years at Napoli, this high octane thriller in the vein of Scarface as much as a documentary with Maradona caught up in the grip of the mafia, drugs and fame.
As in Kapadia’s previous films, art proves to be an escape from real-world problems and despite Maradona’s casting as a villain, any audience will find themselves moved to sympathy.
Available to rent on Amazon Prime Video.
