Critic Reviews for Five Time Champion
Deliberately small-scale, "Five Time Champion" has tough-minded moments but too often veers toward the sweet and even the treacly.
Rule of thumb: If a movie about how life is messy features someone lecturing about how messy life is, that movie is not nearly messy enough to do justice to life.
It's not just the little film that could, it could be the last honest movie in Texas.
Audience Reviews for Five Time Champion
The title is misleading. This has nothing really to do with sports. This is a beautifully realized weaving of the stories of a boy, his mother and estranged father, and his grandparents. Director Berndt Mader has created a very sweet and real slice of small town life that is the best film of the 2011 SXSW Film Festival. Hopefully this will get the national recognition and distribution it deserves.
