  • OUT NOW ON DVD/BLU-RAY

Documentary on the 2010 Isle of Man TT motorcycle race: "the most treacherous and gruelling course in the world". More

Narrated by actor/musician Jared Leto (Lord of War, frontman of 30 Seconds to Mars), this follows TT racers' reckless dedication in their bid to become 'King of the Mountain' and examines what motivates these rare, elite drivers. Racing along public roads on bikes just inches apart – with speeds hitting 200mph – drama, tension and tragedy all combine. Motorsport stars feature, including Guy Martin, John McGuinness (15 time TT winner) and Conor Cummins.

TT: Closer to the Edge marked the year anniversary of the death of Kiwi rider Paul Dobbs who died competing in the race, while the documentary was being shot. Hide

Press Reviews

Empire (UK)

It all makes for a motorsports movie you don’t need to be a petrolhead to enjoy. Full review.

Guardian (UK)

The speeds on such narrow, winding public roads are hair-raising and superbly photographed, the crashes spectacular and the riders far more likable than anyone involved in Formula One. Full review.

Little White Lies (UK)

A fascinating look not only into a sport but into the psyches of those who are prepared to lay down their lives for it. Full review.

Total Film (UK)

Not just for the petrol heads, TT3D is a life-affirming joy ride for anyone with a heartbeat. Full review.
