Nine Days Review 'Took me on a journey that is unforgettable'

Watch #TheGentlemanDriverMovie Today On Netflix

Directed by Mario Mattei, this 90-minute documentary offers a thrilling inside look at the lives of four extraordinary businessmen and sports car drivers who work hard and race even harder.

Unlike the worlds of professional football or soccer, where a non-professional can’t buy his way into playing in the Super Bowl or World Cup, the world of sports car racing has a long-standing tradition of allowing world-class businessmen to pay to compete in top racing events like the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This film shines a spotlight on four such “Gentlemen Drivers”: Ed Brown, President and CEO of Patron Spirits Inc.; Ricardo Gonzalez, Chairman of the Board of ASUCQ; Mike Guasch, CEO Molecule Labs; and Paul Dalla Lana, CEO of NorthWest Value Partners Inc.



Join these high-level businessmen as they strap themselves in behind the wheels of the world’s most technologically-advanced race cars to participate in the exhilarating and often dangerous world of international sports car racing. Watch as they steer a perilous course riddled with obstacles, including facing down negative stereotypes about what it means to be a “Gentleman Driver.” Yet, through dedication, passion, and skill, success always seems to magically follow these men.

To help demystify this phenomenon, THE GENTLEMAN DRIVER features expert interviews on the subjects of success, flow, and sports psychology. It also offers viewers rare access to behind-the-scenes racing environs like the pit garages, personal conversations with the drivers and crew, and tours with the “Gentlemen Driver” CEOs at their places of work. The documentary also incorporates gripping race-track broadcasts and in-car action-cam footage.

With its privileged insights into the worlds of high-level motorsports and high-level business, THE GENTLEMAN DRIVER is sure to both entertain and inspire higher levels of achievement as it reveals time-tested principles and practices for being successful on and off the track.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …
