Top 100 Cycling/Sports Films

(November 25, 2014)
The Armstrong Lie 100 Years of Wrigley Field Crash Reel
The #1 renting film in the Sports & Cycling categories this time around is "The Armstrong Lie", chronicling Lance Armstrong's rise and fall from what is still the greatest sport on earth. Taking silver is A&E's "100 Years of Wrigley Field" (2014) followed by Lucy Walker's half-pipe rivalry doucmentary, "The Crash Reel" (2013). Narrowly missing a podium spot is "Reveal the Path", a "genre-defying adventure film that contemplates what it means to live an inspired life using the bicycle as a mechanism to explore, dream and discover." And, rounding out the Top 10 is one of my favorite cycling documentaries, "A Sunday in Hell", which follows the 1976 Paris-Roubaix -- a psychological and dramatic study of the battle between Merckx, DeVlaeminick, Marten and Moser. Fwiw, I've compiled an exhaustive list of all films related to cycling. If interested, you can have a look here. Here are the Top Renters in Rentertainment's Cycling/Sports section:
