Anelka: Misunderstood ★★★

As a Chelsea fan, I'll always have a soft spot for Nicolas Anelka. But what I'm missing in this documentary is some self-reflection from him. When you hear him talk, it appears like his entire career was "everyone was against me", while the reality was that he was very talented, but his ego is almost twice as big.

Best example I can give is his penalty miss in the CL-final against Man United. Anelka says it "killed his career at Chelsea", but he stayed for 3,5 more seasons, playing regulary, even becoming top scorer one season. So I get the feeling that Anelka has 2 careers; his actual playing career, and the one he thinks he's had.

Luckily there are plenty of other people to do some reflecting for him, which makes for a balanced documentary.
