The early years of a television sports powerhouse are chronicled as ABC becomes a player in the NFL coverage by putting their full resources into a major showcase. Executive Roone Arledge (John Heard) recruits former Dallas Cowboys quarterback 'Dandy' Don Meredith (Brad Beyer), along with Keith Jackson (Shuler Hensley), and the combative Howard Cosell (John Turturro) as commentators for the broadcasts, which become funny, odd trio events to millions of viewers. Jackson departs the show after the first year to take over the network's focus on college football, and former New York Giants star Frank Gifford (Kevin Anderson) takes his place, ruffling Cosell's feathers. Then things get really crazy!

Shadows of Top Gun (made 4 years earlier)are all over this except that the co-star here is the justifiably reputable Apache helicopter. In point of fact there are portions of this that actually feel more like a advertisement for that WMD machine.The actors charisma is counted on to disguise that weakness ... and though attempted, ultimately failed, which is why you probably never heard of this.

It shows everything from the door-to-door pitches, to the salesman conventions, to the personal frustrations. The Maysles allow the story to tell itself, often sitting in particularly awkward situations and letting things play out on their own.

'Kill, Baby, Kill' is a typical Italian horror movie and by that I mean the narrative is terrible but the atmosphere is overwhelming. It's a strange, colourful ride with plenty of chilling sequences that set up camp in your memory.

Chris Z (de) wrote: Awesome, as usual. Some brilliant shots of shadows which I found fascinating, kind of about the political secrets that her lover kept. Unique in that the main character is a young woman, which is rare for Kurosawa. A story of political censorship, fear, an free expression, wrapped up in a story of coming of age and love for our main character who falls for the mystery and excitement, the "have no regrets" attitude of a young man who is pushed into secretive political organizing after a revered university professor is expelled for his liberal views. The young man is imprisoned, and years go by, and when released, they finally meet again, and begin a slightly hidden romance as lovers. He is eventually captured for his organizing, and executed as a spy. The film then takes a fascinating turn as she seeks out his parents, who now almost entirely hate him for being a traitor and ruining their lives. They live in shame and fear, constantly ridiculed by all the other townspeople and only go out at night to do their farm work. The girl essentially forces her way into their lives and slowly proves herself by her work, trying to live the "no regrets" mantra, eventually transforming herself and his parents in the process, no longer afraid of the rest of the town, simply laboring in their own righteous path despite the vitrol and sabotage of their neighbors. A wonderful film.
