Diego Maradona

  • Dir: Asif Kapadia

  • UK, 2019, 130 minmins, DCP

The Oscar-winning director of Amy (2015) and Senna (2010) completes his trilogy of celebrity profiles with this fascinating dissection of one of the world’s greatest footballers. Beyond the polarizing “Hand of God” and “Goal of the Century” moments from Mexico ’86, Asif Kapadia constructs a compelling portrait of Argentina’s tortured son from over 500 hours of previously unseen footage. Working class hero to millions, or drug-addled burnout in deep with the Camorra? Who was the real Diego Maradona?
