The Damned United [DVD] [2009] <b>DVD</b> ~ Michael Sheen
The Damned United [DVD] [2009] DVD ~ Michael Sheen
Most football films try to recreate the drama of a match and fail terribly. This one concentrates on the personalities of the managers, chairmen and players and makes for a terrific film. Michael Sheen is excellent as Brian Clough and they get the grim atmosphere of 1970s northern football just right (I know, I experienced it as a child!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sandinista, 23 May 2010
Full of gems and almost like an anthology of all the different musical styles the Clash played. A few duds too, but since they were willing to try almost anything, that's not surprising. A must-have album.
