We’re film fans here at Spoiler Filled, not football fans. But perhaps we are football film fans? Although this weeks focus, ‘Looking for Eric’ by acclaimed British director Ken Loach, isn’t what we would consider your typical sports movie, seeing that no sport is really played. Instead we have a kind of gateway sports movie about a stressed postman having his life straightened out by a cannabis induced delusion of Eric Cantona. Rich, Abi and Ant discover a new appreciation for the philosophical french footballer in this episode, where other things up for discussion include: how extremely British the film is and how slyly mature it gets.
