Reviews

100
San Francisco Chronicle - Peter Hartlaub
It stands out as one of the best films of the genre, on the strength of the storytelling and wonderful performances.
100
Philadelphia Inquirer - Steven Rea
A pitch-perfect portrait of a man full of inspiration and ambition - and full of himself.
88
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Avoids all sports movie cliches, even the obligatory ending where the team comes from behind.
83
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
What's lost in translation is recovered easily enough in Michael Sheen's astonishing performance as Clough.

The Damned United (2009)


Taking over England's top football club Leeds United, previously successful manager Brian Clough's abrasive approach and his clear dislike of the players' dirty style of play make it certain there is going to be friction. Glimpses of his earlier career help explain both his hostility to previous manager Don Revie and how much he is missing right-hand man Peter Taylor who has loyally stayed with Brighton & Hove Albion.
