Next Goal Wins

 


A genial documentary crowdpleaser about the world's worst international soccer team. Even folk who don't give a hoot about football will find their hearts warmed by inspirational documentary Next Goal Wins. "Next Goal Wins" is an irresistible underdog story - sports-fan credentials not required. If you're a person, and you find other people worth your time and attention, Next Goal Wins will stir you.

 

Offside

 


The rare Iranian film that is not only thoughtful and thought-provoking but also a lot of fun. A sociopolitical parable about women's rights in Iran doesn't sound like a thigh-slapper, but Offside scores a lot of laughs while making its ideological points. A plea for cultural evolution that doesn't point fingers, instead only hoping that the next generations will wake up and take the sensible steps towards the future.

 

Gregory’s Girl

 


It floats effortlessly over its landscape, seeing all from a marvelously cockeyed perspective all its own. Within its modest narrative framework, Gregory's Girl strikes me as a well-nigh flawless comedy. A revealing and credible portrait of adolescence that captures all the confusion, yearning, and terrors of adolescents trying to cope with their ambivalent desires. A charming but slight teen movie about sports, a first romance and growing up.

 

The Damned United

 


The Damned United is a most entertaining study in obsession wrapped in a traditional sports movie. The Damned United is a thoughtful and entertaining study on the perils of ambition that has little to do with soccer and a lot to do with being human. A finely constructed and fiercely entertaining soccer movie that deals more in pride and obsession than penalty kicks. A provocative, darkly funny and particularly damning character study of hubris couched in idealism.
