Slap Shot ★★★★★

Probably the best hockey related movie. A lot of great performances and a lot of interesting introspection towards the absurdity of sports. The rise of Newman's ridiculous hijinks and degenerate hype to raise funds and coverage for the team's renewal has a fascinating parallel to Trump's bizarre rise to power. Both rode the hype train to the proverbial gravy train, regardless of any ethical transgression or moral debasement. Exploitation sells in the media and the more it sells, the more coverage it gets. Sports isn't any different of a racket. Or more so, any racket isn't any different than sports.
