SLAP SHOT

Details 

How have we gone this long without showing a hockey movie in Canada? We were waiting for the right time and that time is now. We bring you the best: Slap Shot! January is really cold, but we’re bringing you some warmth. It’s silly, it’s sexy, it’s sweet, and it’s filled with an earnest hope for the new year. Of course, the man to show up for is Paul Newman, and he never let an audience down. The legendary film critic Pauline Kael said of Newman in this film, “He gives the performance of his life to date.” Imagine that. On the second leg of his career, he was still bringing his best. Of the film itself Kael said, it’s Newman’s warmth that holds the film together. However, it’s also the compelling nature of our game, a tight little script by Nancy Dowd, a crack supporting cast, and the honest and raw aesthetic of the time. See ya on the ice! (VANYA GARRAWAY)
