Something for Everyone
3 June 2019 | by hello-91908See all my reviews

What an enjoyable film! What I expected was a film about a rags-to-riches sporting genius (which I got by the way) but what I also got was story of a country in the grips of scandal, corruption and political turmoil.

Its Central American backdrop made it feel like watching a series of Narcos, and the synth inspired soundtrack matches the 80's era perfectly - it wouldn't feel out of place in an episode of Stranger Things!

I would recommend to anyone - sports fans or not. A thoroughly enjoyable documentary
