Critic Reviews for Wayne
The film deftly touches on Australia's cultural cringe as Gardner admits how his class made him feel unworthy of the accolades he had earned.
You don't have to be a motorsport fan to richly enjoy Kiwi producing duo Matthew Metcalfe and Fraser Brown's (McLaren, the upcoming Scott Dixon doco Born Racer) latest work, but it will certainly help.
I'm not into motorbikes, yet this documentary revved along in my mind in the days after I saw it.
What the doco Wayne does very well is chart the immense distance - both literally and metaphorically - Gardner had to traverse to become the first Australian to win the coveted 500cc World Championship.
Directed by Jeremy Sims, Wayne is snapshot of '80s male culture; a tall-but-true story of a life lived at full tilt by a bloke with a singular vision and the audacity to deliver on it.
