Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Damned United [DVD]  (DVD)
I can remember the distaste everyone at my school, and my father who was a great footballer, had for Leeds United. No one really admired them and there was such glee when Sunderland beat them in the FA Cup final and WBA stopped them winning another league title in the last match of the season.
This DVD portrays the ludicrous appointmnet of Brian Clough as manager of Leeds - a team that he had vilified for years before hand. It is a rather flimsy remit for a film but it cleverley captures the atmophere of the times with clever usage of TV and newsreel footage of the times. At times you can almost feel that it is a documentary. Worth a watch. Michael Sheen is excellant as usual.
