Once In A Lifetime – Review and Interview

Cinematical has two great stories up this week about Miramax’s release of Once In A Lifetime: The Extraordinary Story of the New York Cosmos (imdb). First up is the review that first got me excited about this film from when it was screened at the Tribeca film festival.

It’s a wide-eyed, delirious celebration
of American soccer, the likes of which we’ve never seen. And it’s
indescribably wonderful, the kind of film that brings a smile to your
face the moment it begins and doesn’t let go.

The film sounds very moving and exciting at the same time.

Next is an insightful interview with Producer John Battsek and co-director/editor Paul Crowder from just before the Tribeca film festival. Lots of good stuff here, not just about the film, but about documentary style filmmaking in general.

Once In A Lifetime opened in NYC this weekend and widens its release starting July 14th.
