Leonardo García Alarcón, a searcher of baroque gems, and Thomas Jolly are attentive not to transform Eliogabalo into a sublime icon who would abase virtue.

Christoph Marthaler’s production provides an atmosphere of contemporaneity strongly accentuated by the choice of a single set, where the men’s despair is submerged in Berg’s dearly sought-after sobriety.

Description: "Together with Jean-Pierre we've produced 'Fatwa', from Mahmoud Ben Mahmoud, a Tunesian living in Belgium. The movie says the storyline of a father who returns to Tunesia to bury his son who died from an apparent suicide. The scenario had repeatedly been rejected by some French producers because the movie supposedly stated that the murderers are among us. Mahmoud, who knows a lot about Muslim culture and knew the Muslim recruiters who are at the origin of Sharia4Belgium, told to me: "That's crazy, they don't understand what's happening." And that was in 2008." (Luc Dardenne)

Tony D'Amato(Al Pacino) is the head coach of the Miami Sharks who are owned by the Christina Pagniacci(Cameron Diaz) who is using the Miami Franchise only for profit. Problem stirs up after long time star quarterback Cap Rooney(Dennis Quaid)is injured along with his back up bringing in third string quarterback Willie Beamen(Jamie Foxx) who becomes the face of the franchise after having nice minigame after nice game. The only trouble is that he plays only with his head and not with his heart, with an aging squad that needs an emotional leader to tutorial them to victory. Also Starring: James Woods, Matthew Modine, LL Cool J, Bill Bellemy, Lawrence Taylor, Charelton Heston, Aaron Eckhart, and John C. McGinley.In a cinema that rarely produces pro football movies, this is the cream of the crop. It captures the reality along with the heroic storyline of a nobody rising to the top. The film is humorous, dramatic, and a thriller for all sports fans.This is not only one of Oliver Stone's greatest movies but this is also the begin of Jamie Foxx's "good" acting career. Forget what the critics told about Collateral or Ray being the beginning for Jamie Foxx. It was Any Given Sunday. Willie Beaman is a complex hero and Foxx nailed the part. He was magnificent. He played the part to perfection and out shined the nice Al Pacino. The helping cast was also wonderful with nice performances from Cameron Diaz, LL Cool J, James Woods, and surprisingly John C. McGinley. It is very rare to search a nice dramatic football film but this is definitely one those tiny few.Overall, this is one of the best sports films of all time and it is highly enjoyable for adult audiences.I highly suggest this movie.
It seems that many folks dislike this film and I can see why. First of all it shows that professional athletes are far away from being perfect. A lot farther than we would like to believe. The film shows that many athletes as we know are just out their for the money. It also shows the corruption in the owners and politicians. But for me, all of this is nice thing. I like seeing a film that does not contain glory in sports.Another aspect of the film was the cast. I thought the cast that was place together was very well place together. I was especially surprised at the performance of Cameron Diaz. I thought she played very well as the viscous and corrupt owner. Specifically in the part were she black-mails the mayor into giving the squad cash for a fresh stadium. Jamie Foxx also gave a very well played performance as the fresh upcoming quarterback. His role shows that he has become sick with fame and fortune and has seem to forgotten who helped to reach his superstar status. For example when he ignores most of the plays named in and decides to run the minigame the method he wants to. He reaches as mission were he just flat out ignores everyone. For example he says: "I'm trying to victory coach. I ain't trying to disrespect nobody, but winning is the only thing I respect." I think Oliver Stone shows that this is the trouble we have in our society, that everything is about winning. His relationship falls apart with his girlfriend and seems to trust that their is nothing that should stop him. He almost reaches a mission were he believes he is like a god. But, he realizes he needs a wakeup call or he will end up like the some of the folks around him. I liked the method Dennis Quaid played as the long time starting quarterback who nearly becomes paralyzed. Actually my initial reaction after he got hit was that his family would wish him to instantly retire. What happened was the opposite, his wife wanted him to risk being paralyzed and brain hurt so he can receive one more contract although Dennis Quaid was trying to explain to her that he is worried about what might happen to himself. Or one of the confrontations between wife and husband when he mentions to her that they could place the children to bed and the wife responds by saying:"Why can't we hire a maid?" This also adds on to Jamie Foxx's role and shows that the users are pressurized by their families towards nice decisions and terrible decisions and that the families have also lost touch with what is necessary in life. As well with Lawrence Taylor's role which shows the player-doctor relationship and the role that age and lack of education forcing users to push themselves over the limit for that last bonus, knowing after they retire they may not survive in the true world. LL Cool J's role as the star running-back shows that he no longer cares about the squad or the minigame itself and feels threatened by Jamie Foxx because he has brought a fresh style of testing to the squad and they tend to not accept with every another but above all with this fresh style of enjoy may not allow him reach a certain amount of rushing yards to reach his bonus. Again Jamie Foxx comes into this part of the film at the end when he hurts his arm but does not say anyone worried what might happen to his career. I think overall this present that their is too much emphasis in sports and I'm telling this even though I'am a large sports fan.A very interesting part of the film is the Al Pacino's role as the head coach. His ongoing fighting with Cameron Diaz shows the relationship between owner and coach. The coach wants to victory minigames and have control of the squad but the owner wants the money, the power and the credit for building a team. Pacino has fallen into a slump and doesn't like the methods are looking for the future of the his job and the sport. For example when he says: "It's TV, it changed everything, changed the method we think forever. I mean the first time they stopped the minigame to slash away to some commercial that was the end of it. Because it was our concentration that mattered, not theirs, not some fruitcake selling cereal." He believes the minigame no matters any more it is the cash and this is what I trust is the main mission of the movie. It is no longer the minigame that matters it is the folks who place the cash into it and this is what has been or what will be the downfall of sports or really anything.I think that a nice message through all these downfalls is that if you stick together and focus on your target you will succeed no matter how large the obstacle, hence the game "Any Given Sunday".
Wild and outrageous, Any Given Sunday gives the viewer a glimpse into an athletic globe not too far from the true thing. While some of the scenes were a tiny too over the top, it proved to be a very enjoyable experience. As a major football fan, I was disappointed in the fact the NFL did not let Stone to test their logos and stadiums. Oh well, I seemed to play the fictional league even better, even if some of the squad uniforms were a dreadful. Jamie Fox portrayed Willie Beamon perfectly, epitomizing the selfish athlete with a cultured ease. While the speed of Beamon's rise proved to be a tiny too quick, the message in the rise and fall of stardom was more poignant than anything.
