Friday Night Lights Directed by Peter Berg

Critics reviews

Friday Night Lights finally came to the screen in 2004, directed by the awe-strikingly-pandering actor-turned-director Peter Berg… Berg’s blood-and-thunder movie is a trial run for his 2013 Lone Survivor, another paean to manly masochism, with his Permian High School Panthers absorbing bone-splintering hits after every snap, and hacking up buckets of red, red kroovy in-between… I’d like to believe that Coach Linklater would’ve done some different play-calling.
