Friday Night Lights

A Movie Reel

Friday Night Lights: 9 out of 10.

I attended several high school football games, usually my Michael Power Trojans taking on our arch rivals, the St. Michael's College Kerry Blues.  What I saw then and what you see in "Friday Night Lights" are two completely different animals.  In Texas, high school football is a great deal more than just a game.

This movie is shot at a frenetic pace that makes the entire experience that much more real and tense.  I absolutely loved this flick - everything from the Public Enemy soundtrack to the gritty realism to the football itself.  I haven't liked a movie this much in quite some time.  Judging from my recent reviews, it was "Capturing the Friedmans" back in October.
