    I recently rediscovered this Disney animation of a beastly soccer game. Watch it on your library's Hoopla service.

    If you like Iceland, you and your kids should enjoy The Falcons. Also known as Víti í Vestmannaeyjum.
    Now on Amazon Prime

    I watched this on Kanopy.com. But I don't recommend it unless you are a philosopher

    You can watch the 2017 documentary Fuera de Juego (Offside) on Amazon Prime, but I don't really recommend it.

    The PBS Nova "Thai Cave Rescue" documentary is now on Netflix and very informative.

    "Mi Amigo Alexis", with Alexis Sanchez, is now on Netflix. It's really good.

    For over a year, I looked forward to seeing Diamantino, but I ended up being very disappointed. To judge for yourself, you can rent it on Amazon and iTunes in the USA. But I don't recommend doing that.o_O

    This film is great and also highlights some SF Bay Area soccer people and groups other than Stanford! Not to knock Stanford, but it's good to see exposure for other pockets of greatness in the area, in this case SFSU and Berkeley.

    It would be nice to see more soccer documentaries like Sundakali from Nepal.

    In Asif Kapadia's "Diego Maradona", the football is astounding. The drama, not so much. Now on HBO

    Britt-Marie was Here (Britt-Marie var här) is in San Francisco for one more day... A pleasant film boomers might enjoy, particularly if they follow this thread on bigsoccer!

    Beinball is a clever short comedy (with a dark ending) on Amazon Prime in the USA.

    If you like romance, See You Soon (2019) may be available on Hoopla through your public library, or you can purchase/rent in the usual places.

    I watched The Other Chelsea on Hoopla, but there is a version on youtube (I don't know if it is official). However, the Tifo Football video mentioned in my review is easy to watch on youtube, so watch that for the plain facts related to today's news. But The Other Chelsea gives you the human impact of the issues in the Ukraine.

    I watched The Team That Never Played on Hoopla. It is another great documentary from 2010. And it's a story I had never heard before.

    If you are looking for a good cause for your 2019 soccer charities, look at the ones in Soccer in the City: Atlanta's Soccer in the Streets, America Scores, DC Scores, Open Goal Project, and South Bronx United. Watch the film on Amazon Prime in the USA.

    Zebras (2016) is an honest and complete portrayal of street kids and their experience representing Argentina at the 2014 Street Child World Cup in Rio de Janeiro. Now on Amazon Prime in the USA.

    Copa90 has a youtube series on derbies, and Derby Days Berlin (2019) covers Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin. This episode has the most clever TIFO and fan displays that I have ever seen. Worth watching!

    Lost in Africa (2010) is on Amazon Prime in the USA. While I don’t recommend it as a soccer movie, its view of life in a Kenyan slum is revealing.
