Brian's Song Reviews
Brian Piccolo and Gayle Sayers were new teammates on the Chicago Bears during Sayers' rookie season. They were opposites in every way from skin color to personalities, and they became best friends. One day after becoming very successful; teammates discover Brian is diagnosed with cancer and Gayle will do his best to be Brian's friend till the end.
"How's your mother?"
Buzz Kulick, director of Miles from Nowhere, The Hunter, Her Secret Life, Women of Valor, Vanished, Cage without a Key, Warning Shot, and Riot, delivers Brian's Song. The storyline for this picture is very well told. I loved how they incorporated real NFL films into the movie. The cast delivers awesome performances and includes James Caan, Billy Dee Williams, Jack Warden, Bernie Casey, Shelley Fabares, and David Huddelston.
"They have to operate again."
I added this to my Netflix online wish list a long time ago and finally got around to seeing this...I am very glad I did. This is a very epic tale of friendship. I loved the performances by Caan and Billy Dee Williams and felt this was one of the best sports movies I have ever seen. I strongly recommend this.

74 minutes for Brian Piccolo seems about right.
