Slap Shot

Saw #SlapShot. The industrial/working/underclass stuff is really vivid.

#SlapShot. Newman’s semi-redemption is appropriately ambiguous. He is, after all, a scoundrel, however appealing.

#SlapShot. The still & ever-thriving Hanson cult has pretty completely obscured the original (half-hearted) critique …

… of Philadelphia Flyers-type violence. I remember, for what it’s worth. It wasn’t that funny!

#SlapShot. Paul Newman skates pretty well! Less confident with stick & puck. Really confident w’ the profanity.
