Fifth about The Seventh

Hoosiers

HoosiersHoosiers: David Anspaugh’s film is an exemplary specimen of the underdog sub-genre of sport dramas; it’s also clichéd, but it’s efficient at that. The side-road dramas, however, are shallow, facile, and artificially resolved. Acting is OK: Gene Hackman, Barbara Hershey and Dennis Hopper are good in their roles; the kids, not asked to do much, end up not doing much. Carroll Timothy O’Meara’s editing does a good job with the sporting sequences; Jerry Goldsmith’s score is beautiful, diverse, rousing, but also a bit dated.
