I find sports films inspiring, exciting and interesting. The documentary Murderball is a wonderful film. Elevating the visibility of paraplegic sports, specifically rugby, the film culminates at the 2004 Paralympics. This is a full contact, wheelchair version of rugby, that is exhilarating to watch, and carries all the drama, heart and politics of world class competition. The film made me laugh and cry. It's not only about the sport, but the life and heart of the athletes. This is a great film about coping, sports and love. The athletes are smart, funny, enthusiastic, honest, colorful and grounded. I truly loved this film ... well done!!!
