The best American film since "Gone With the Wind"!!
25 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tucker Lucas, a cinematically nimble, awe-inspiring auteur, has created what is, unquestionably, one of the most emotionally expansive, powerfully evocative human-interest stories ever brought to the silver screen. With the sort of epic scope we rarely see in pictures today (Lucas reminds me of David Lean in his prime, e.g., "Lawrence of Arabia"), the canvas, though broad, is literally covered with unforgettable, cineramaesque images and moments that will take your breath away and remain with you forever.

It may seem foolish to compare this film to "Gone With the Wind," but really, no other film in terms of mere breadth and ingenuity, comes nearly as close to "The Sports Fan." I don't know what this talented, promising young filmmaker has up his sleeve next (the word on the street is he's working on an ambitious costume piece/sci-fi/historical drama--who knows!), but you can bet dollars to doughnuts I'll be eagerly awaiting, on pins and needles, for that movie. Tucker Lucas is an American treasure.
