Two SIFF movies that I recommend:
This won the American Documentary Audience award at Sundance this year.
Description: Quad rugby, aka “murderball,” is played by quadriplegics in customized wheelchairs that resemble something out of MAD MAX. It’s a full-contact sport, played with manic intensity by super-competitive jocks. MURDERBALL looks on-court and off at the indomitable spirit of true athletes.
From the producer of Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.
Description: After a shady pharmaceutical transaction goes violently awry, a levelheaded con artist discovers that leaving the thug life is a tad more difficult than anticipated. Matthew Vaughn (Guy Ritchie’s longtime producer) taps down the flash in favor of a burnished professionalism that harkens back to the glory, gory days of British crime films.
