Coupled with Marco Beltrami and Buck Sanders' riveting score along with Phedon Papamichael's visually arresting cinematography and its impeccably revving sound design made "Ford v Ferrari" best experienced on the big screen.
Genre-wise, Ford v Ferrari is really a space picture like The Martian or Apollo 13, having more in common with those team-based efforts at an engineering goal than it does a true racing movie like Rush.
The film is much like the car it is based on. At times it is messy, almost like it's going to fall apart. It takes shortcuts and is all the better for it, and when it takes off, it's shockingly fun to watch.
"Ford v Ferrari" is to James Mangold what "Chef" is to Jon Favreau. Where the latter tells a semi-autobiographical tale of art through the lens of food; Mangold brings the audience into the meat grinder of creation and competition in racing.
