The latest film I have watched ...

A film like Race, on the life of the legendary Olympic games racer and 4 gold medal winner, Jesse Owens in the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin couldn't be more appropriate, as we follow the Olympic Games in Rio.

Issues of success are often associated with inner drive, committment, self-confidence and self-empowerment, determination and courage among other factors and despite  most of the critics' opinions I did enjoy it.


"Perhaps the strongest argument against Race is that a film this important deserves more than a standard by the numbers treatment (...) bare necessities are there, the performances are competent, and there are some strong moments but Race suffers from lack of ambition." - James Berardinelli.
