The Damned United : They love me for what I'm not, they hate me for what I am

Director : Tom Hooper

Writer : Peter Morgan

Released on : March 2009

Casts : Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Colm Meaney

Brian Clough baru saja diterima menjadi manager first league top team, Leeds United, setelah ditinggalkan oleh manager sebelumnya, Don Revie, yang menjadi manager tim Inggris.

Tapi, Brian Clough punya masalah pribadi sama Don Revie. Dan bahkan sebelom dia memulai kerjanya di Leeds United, dia tampil di Yorkshire News, di mana dia dengan jelas menghujat Leeds United dan Don Revie

This time, Brian Clough must handle a team whom hate him, under Don Revie’s shadow, alone, without his best friend and assitant, Peter Taylor

What a nice movie. Ga nyesel nonton

Jalan ceritanya bagus, dan alurnya yang maju-mundur bikin film ini lebih misterius dan bikin penasaran. Cause we know what actually happens in the flashback, little by little. Buat yg udah ntn My Sister Keepers, bakal ngerasa kalo alurnya mirip, maju – mundur, tapi The Damned United lebih gampang dipahami soalnya ada tanggalnya :p

Ide ceritanya oke. Soalnya film tentang bola sering ada, tapi fokusnya pasti ke pemaennya. Sementara ini ke pelatihnya. Dan settingnya yang di England, negara pelopor sepak bola, juga bagus. Ditambah dengan aksen tokoh tokohnya yang catchy banget di telinga, bikin film ini cukup unforgettable

And don’t get it wrong. This isn’t a movie about football. It’s about a man, and how he struggle in the world of football. Tapi ya emang lumayan banyak adegan bolanya dan itu – I must admit – lumayan keren

And talking bout the ending, endingnya oke. Beda sama perkiraanku. Dan yes, it’s such a nice ending. One more thing to make this movie unforgettable

Oh btw di film ini f-words lumayan sering dipake. Buat yg ga suka misuh atau ga tahan denger orang misuh, ati ati aja. Bakal sering perlu tutup kuping, atau selesai nonton jadi suka misuh :p

Brian Clough: [to the assembled Leeds players] Well, I might as well tell you now. You lot may all be internationals and have won all the domestic honours there are to win under Don Revie. But as far as I’m concerned, the first thing you can do for me is to chuck all your medals and all your caps and all your pots and all your pans into the biggest fucking dustbin you can find, because you’ve never won any of them fairly. You’ve done it all by bloody cheating.

Brian Clough: If someone said I was wrong, we talk about it for 20 minutes and then we decide I was right.

Brian Clough: I wouldn’t say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one

Cerita : 8/10

Setting : 8/10

Ending : 9 /10

Overall : 8,3 / 10
