British film-maker Asif Kapadia knows a thing about profiling iconic cultural figures. His documentaries Senna (about Formula One legend Ayrton Senna) and Amy (about troubled singer Amy Winehouse) prove as much, and Kapadia’s latest film takes a look at controversial Argentine footballer Diego Maradona. Lauded by critics, it’s a fascinating story of a flawed genius who was as brilliant on the pitch as he was dogged by scandal off it.
