I went to see Red Army last night in an almost empty theatre at Yonge and Dundas, my first time there. That theatre is massive! I think I went up ten escalators. The documentary tells the story of the Soviet Union's Red Army hockey team in a series of interviews with the captain Slava Fetisov, and some of the other Russian Five. Insightful commentary on both hockey and socialism, it really made an impact on me. We only see a fraction of what the players went through, and what it was like living in Russia at that time. It's enough to make you think about how fortunate we are to live in Canada. You also see the benefits of dedication, hard work and structure alongside creativity and the camaraderie and trust that exists between teammates. The best examples of that seemed to be under the coach Anatoli Tarasov. I tried to find a clip of him on youtube but they aren't as good - so just watch the movie and see for yourself.
It's like trying to find a dark cat in a dark room, it's not funny
