Murderball

Let’s get it on.

A jolt of pure energy, this rockin’ doc came out of virtually nowhere to score an Oscar nod when 2005’s best films went head-to-head.

While it ultimately lost the little gold man to some birds walking endlessly through the snow in March of the Penguins, it remains arguably the better film 15 years later.

Tracking the lives of quad rugby athletes – men who slam their wheelchairs into each other with wild abandon – it can stand with the heavyweights of sports docs.

Mixing inspiration with anger, but topped with hope, it’s an all-out winner.
