Chariots of Fire

1981

Hugh Hudson
Director

Loaded two-disc release of the tale of two British athletes in the run up to the 1924 Paris Olympics. Lovingly created film is a little leisurely paced, but is a treasure. Parodies of the Vangelis scored slow-mo running may have done the feature some damage over the years. Highly recommended.
