Soccer As Never Before
Dir. Hellmuth Costard (1970).
Shot with seven 16mm cameras, Costard's conceptual documentary is a portrait of 1970 Manchester United superstar George Best during the course of a single match. Costard favors middle shots that give Best space to perform his solo activities; the result is extremely defamiliarizing.
