North Dallas Forty (DVD)

In a society in which major league sporting events have replaced Sunday worship as the religion of choice, North Dallas Forty appear s like a de secration at the altar. In this film, directed by Ted Kotcheff (The Appr enticeship of Duddy Kravitz), the National Footba ll League is revealed to be more about the money than the game. Nick Nolte is North Dallas Bul ls pass-catcher Phillip Elliott, whose cynicism and independent spirit is looked upon as troublesome by team coaches Johnson (Charles Durning) and Strothers (G.D. Spradli n) and team owner Conrad Hunter (Steve Forre st). Elliot, at the end of his career and wise to the way players are bo ught and sold li ke cattle, goes through the games pumped up on painkill ers conveniently provided by the management. His teammates include savvy quar terback Maxwell (Mac Davis) and lunk-headed defensive lineman Jo B ob Priddy (Bo Svenson), who deal with the impersonality and back-b iting of the game through off-field diversions. When the Bulls management ben ches Elliot after manipulating him to help train a fell ow teammate, Ell iot has to decide whether there is more to life than the game that he lo ves.
