    In Cold Sweat (2018), a footballer fights the travel ban placed by her husband, which prevents her from competing for Iran. I watched this gripping drama on Kanopy. It opens your eyes to the problems of Permission in Iran, which men continue to hold over their wives.

    Unbreakable - The Steve Zakuani Story (2019) is an extremely well-made documentary of a man reviewing his footballing career that ended just short of meteoric. On Amazon Prime.

    I saw "The Game Of Their Lives" this year.

    Patrick Stewart is in it. It talks about the 1950 USA World Cup match vs England and some of the preparation for that. It's told in a flashback form from someone (Patrick Stewart?) and his grandson while watching one of the MLS All-Star games. Various MLS players make cameos as evidenced in this first photo of them meeting members of that 1950 US WC team:

    Here's a photo of the credits:

    As of this post, there are two showings scheduled for Flix on 12/30 and it seems to be on the Showtime app until April of 2022.

    Adidas vs Puma aka Duell der Brüder (2016) covers a small but significant piece of sports history along with the drama of two brothers turned enemies. I watched this on Amazon Prime.

    In Penalty (2019), trying to break a teammate's leg with a club (rather than with a well-timed tackle) is an idea from Lethal Soccer Mom that should never be repeated. On Netflix but not worth your time.

    The film and acting are well done, but like most Bollywood films, Sikandar (2009) is overly long. If you like a languid pace and a confounding ending, this could be the film for you. On Amazon.

    Pelé — NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY


    Hmmmm... Is it new? Old stuff coming back? I know nothing about this documentary other than that.

    It’s an all new movie funded by netflix. I saw one review that said it was good but covered all the stuff that’s already been covered about Pele. I don’t think I’ll watch it, because I’ve already reviewed several Pele movies & documentaries, and there are 600 more soccer movies I’d rather get to...

    I did not care much for Fixed, a Football Comedy (2020). But if you watch it along with other works I mention, you might discover a new career in match-fixing. On Amazon.

    OK, i caved.

    In its chronicle of Pele's growing stardom, the Netflix documentary Pelé (2021) is very well done and shows footage of him that was almost lost to history.
