Red Army – Quickie Review

c7af20d0a9a087d4e2b3c3add79299a8_cannes-2014_1This documentary is about the Soviet Red Army hockey team as mainly told by one of the team’s most storied captains, Slava Fetisov. This is a fascinating film that documents the parallels between the rise and fall of the Soviet empire in relation to it’s hockey program and the end of the cold war. Very moving and intimate portrayal of the famous Russian Five as well as very humorous at times. One of the best hockey films, period.
