*Warning Spoilers* If you are expecting to watch something like "When A Man Loves A Woman" then you will probably enjoy this film. The first thing that strikes you is the look of the film. It's a poorman's "Mystic River" but with a colour scheme which is reminiscent of "Midnight Cowboy" and a style which is very reminiscent of "Midnight Express". The music is probably the best thing about it, and all the sound effects are there for the purpose of using them. The actors (Ron Silver, Patricia Arquette, Tom Berenger, Martin Landau, Gabriel Byrne, Jeff Daniels) give great performances, especially Goldblum, who you can almost see as the lead. As for the football scenes, you know what you're getting into when you see the film. This is a film about football, but to use the term "football" in this context makes the film less than it could have been. "Anyways, football has nothing to do with the story, it's a representation of how the two young men become involved in what is basically an illegal battle for the bottom of the barrel - the most coveted club in the world - by competing against one another to win the freedom and a piece of the famous gold". Good use of metaphors but what's the point of a football match if you don't have a football? And the "drugs, gambling and prostitution" scene would have worked better in a film like "The Player" but the director thinks that isn't a bad thing, by including it it's not a film at all. Anyway, you can still find this film. It's about football, but not about football. Good use of metaphors, but in a film that's only 1 hour 45 minutes long you'll find something else to watch.
