Film Review: Rush

by Jake Kring-Schreifels

Universal Pictures

Formula One Racing is considered a niche sport in the United States but never has it felt so alive, mainstream, and universal than in Rush. This specifically intriguing world (mostly experienced in Europe) is brought to visual and visceral life by director Ron Howard who needs his credit to appear on this film to assure his audience that this indeed is a Ron Howard picture.

ESPN 30 for 30 Premiere: "Broke"

Many professional athletes make millions of dollars, but many lose it in a heartbeat. How is this possible? Why does this happen? Along with producer Alfred Spellman, Billy Corben directs his latest film Broke- which I had the opportunity to cover at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier in April- that attempts to answer these questions. Talking heads of current and former athletes narrate this story, providing anecdotal commentary and cautionary tales on their liquid state of compensation.
