Victory to ‘Escape…’

The Observer Blog is asking readers to name what we think is the best football movie ever made.

Too easy: it has to be Escape to Victory, released 25 years ago. Some cite Max von Sydow’s sensitive protrayal of a Nazi-wth-a-heart. But, for me, it’s the way Pelé acts Sylvester Stallone off the screen.

It’s either the worst best film ever made, or the best worst film. Either way it should win.
