Class of '92 (2013)

Class of ’92 (2013)

I was in bits at the opening sequence. I managed to just about hold it together for the rest. I fell in love with Eric more (even more)(I didn’t think it was possible, either). And much goosebumps ensued. Do you like being wrong? I like being wrong. Do you like being wrong? I like being […]

Rudo y Cursi (2008)

Rudo y Cursi (2008)

This feature-length directorial debut from Carlos Cuarón sees Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna re-conjoin like they do (see: Y Tu Mamá También and most other films one or the other is in) to create a dromedy (do people say that?) attempting to satirise contemporary Mexico. I’m a little bit of a fan of Gael García […]

Looking for Eric (2009)

Looking for Eric (2009)

It’s got Eric in it, which – as happened at United – almost makes everything else that follows an anti-climax, and though having Eric in it is enough (for me and I guess most other United fans), having Eric Cantona the actor playing the part of Eric sadly (for me at least) isn’t. I should […]

Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait (2006)

Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait (2006)

A squillion synchronised cameras all trained on Zinedine Zidane – what’s not to like?! The directors, Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno, I think, are attempting to address the awkward question of Football as Art? And they certainly put Football in its best clothes. But suitably lo-fi soundtracks (provided by purveyors of the craft Mogwai) and […]

The Referees (2010)

The Referees (2010)

Y’see what Eric Cardot, Lehericey Delphine and Yves Hinant have done here is direct an incredibly understated and articulate documentary that has changed my perception of refereeing for good (not to say I was mean about them anyway). Not bad, hey? From the ‘celebrity’ lifsetyle enjoyed by some, to the euphoria of a good reffing, […]

Escape To Victory (1981)

Escape To Victory (1981)

More racist stereotypes than you can fit into a Jim Davison comedy sketch. More ham  than you can fit into a really big and expertly vacuum packed bag of ham. More terribleness than you’ll find in a terrible convention held in Terrible town by Terry Terrible of Terribleton. Notable for being: the film, and performance […]
