The Fifa World Cup started a few weeks ago and while I have as much interest in soccer as any other American, I’ve been following the scores and watching a few of the games. This provided the inspiration for today’s question: what’s your favorite sports movie?
The answer for me is obvious: Raging Bull. I don’t have anything original to say about Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece and it’s a flawless piece of cinema. Hoop Dreams would be a close second for me: an equally stunning picture that’s really emotionally powerful.
But what would you choose?
