Dir. Oliver Stone, 1999. 162 mins. 35mm. With Al Pacino, Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, LL Cool J. Stone brings his one-of-a-kind talent for capturing beauty amid chaos to this portrait of the suffering, pride, and grit of professional football and the equally cutthroat nature of its business. Amid a hotly contested playoff race, head coach Tony D’Amato (Pacino), general manager Christina Pagniacci (Diaz), and freshly anointed starting quarterback Willie Beaman (Foxx) struggle to find cohesiveness off the field but find that their most important battles are the individual sacrifices that the Miami Sharks choose to make, play-by-play, second-by-second. With tracks from OutKast, Mobb Deep, DMX, and guest appearances from football legends Lawrence Taylor, Dick Butkus, Terrell Owens, Emmitt Smith, the film is at once gritty and surreal, and LL Cool J supplies his timeless cool as star running back Julian Washington.
