Personal Best is a gripping film about competition and pushing oneselfto the absolute limit - what you leave behind in the process and whatyou build. Mariel Hemingway's character Chris is blessed with naturaltalent but initially lacks the drive and motivation that has taken hersoon-to-be lover Tori ...
Some of the posts here are very critical of this film, accusing it ofbeing slow and exploitative. But I think it should be taken intoaccount that this is essentially a film about people's relationship toeach other, and not about car chases and explosions. I found it to beunderstated, realistic, and ...
Mariel Hemingway stars in what is perhaps the most defining film of hercareer, a vehicle that displays her acting talents at what is probablyher own 'personal best'.In "PERSONAL BEST", Mariel is Chris Cahill, a young and attractivebi-sexual athlete competing at the Olympic Team Trials for the 1980Ol...
As flawed as it might seem, and as much as Mariel Hemingway's body mayhave been exploited in the interest of box office sales... This was avery important movie for me and many girls my age. It was the firstmovie we ever saw that let us know that we weren't the only girls inthe world who liked other ...
I wish to argue against the fact that the film exploits the bodies ofwomen.It is true that the movie was billed, in pressbook releases, as a sportsmovie featuring toned, "sexual" female bodies (not an exact quote). Inthisway, the makers may have attempted to make a film that was pleasurable tothe m...
Excellent, the relationship, more friendship than sex between 2 women whoare friends, lovers and rivals at the same time. At the end they are justfriends. Not many movies about track and of course probably this is theonlyone about the intimacy of the relations between the runners, thedifficulties of...
"Personal Best" opens with a beautiful shot: a lone spot of sweat onthe cement as the camera pans slowly upwards to Mariel Hemingway'stense profile as she prepares for a race. Soon afterward, however, theactress opens her mouth and out comes this little girl voice with apuny range. It's only natural...
I believe this movie was the first, and best, movie to treat therelationship between sex and athletic performance in a serious and nonstereotypical way. Other films treated athletes as either eunuch/priestswhose only concern was their athletic performance, or as over sexed satyrswho required sex as...
This is a beautiful and understated film about people trying to get thebest out of the interaction of their personal lives with their sportsperformance. This is a very realistic, documentary-like film, and noteverybody wants that from a film. If you want predictable, this isn'tit: this film is human...
The best part of this film is you get a look at Eugene, Oregon, the meccaoftrack and field inthe early 1980s. Mariel Hemingway is pretty convincing as a pentathlete.Sheis tall, very fitand moves with much of the grace of a hurdler. Of note is that most of theothers in this film,with the exception of...
Personal Best is a wonderful story of love, growing up and competition.Chris must grow up and find her own way in an intense arena. She competeswith her lover Tori for prizes and the coach's attention. The moviedeftlyexplores the issue of how to compete with and love someone at the sametime.The movi...
I saw this film in its first release, then again a few nights ago oncable and it affirmed my first impression that this was one of a scanthandful of good sports movies. The shots of San Louis Obispo areevocative, for one thing, giving us not just the apricot sand of thedunes but the whoosh of cars o...
There have been so many things said about this particular movie . . .in my opinion (for what it's worth) I found this movie to be simply . .. .Excellent . . . Period ! Released in 1982, Personal Best is aboutChris Cahill (played wonderfully by Mariel Hemmingway) who, along withTory Skinner (played b...
Although it has been many years since I saw this film it stands out asbeing an excellent film, both in the content-human relationships &competition, as well as the cinematography.Mariel Hemingway is simply stunning. Indeed the Women's High Jump isamong the best events to watch at any Track & Field m...
I would like to begin by saying that this movie really hits it on the markfor showing the human side of its characters. Its portrayal of love ofmanyforms rings astounding true from the beginning to the end. I would liketoadd, though, that it does strike me viewing it today as somewhatexploitingits...
The inner world of women's track and field is examined in this underratedfilm. An up and comer (Hemingway) meets up and becomes competetive friendswith the veteran looking for one more shot at olympic glory (Donnelly).THeir coach, played well by Scot Glen, tries to keep both of themfocused.A good fi...
First, the good. This is one of the more accurate behind-the-sceneslooks at competitive Olympic athletes ever captured. Towne must havehad some experience or exposure in this realm because the downtimeinteractions are right on. Towne is also pretty good at themotivational games between coach and ath...
This film is quite dated, but that's okay. No mention of steroids, in apre-Ben Johnson track and field world. Well, I guess that's not quitetrue, as one coach did mention things that could inadvertently show upon a test. But that was it. And I remember how things were in the lateSeventies, with casu...
In 1982, I suppose this movie would have come across as bothvoyeuristic and somewhat gutsy, featuring as its "hook" a lesbianrelationship between two young athletes. In 2010, it no longer seemsgutsy - so that aspect of the movie is simply voyeuristic, although itdoes lead to a sometimes interesting ...
As flawed as Personal Best may be, and as much as Mariel Hemingway's bodymay have been exploited in the interest of box office sales... This was avery important movie for me and many girls my age. It was the first movieweever saw that let us know that we weren't the only girls in the world wholiked ...
This moderately entertaining film would have been so much better had it beenshorter. There just wasn't enough of a story to drag this out for more thantwo hours. The sports scenes were rather well done, but after a while, Ibegan to lose interest in the various relationships that were key to thefil...
It's my private opinion that Robert Towne really wanted to make apicture about two gay **male** athletes but had to write the parts forwomen in order to get the project financed. The film critics loved it.Audiences stayed away in droves and a five year exile from moviedirecting was imposed on award-...
I have always loved this classic tale of two cool, starry-eyed,cross-country, long-legged distance runners, tragically hailing fromopposite sides of the border town track and bar, who manage to break freeand sprint halfway to mingle and drool over vodka and KY jelly-filleddonutsbefore making a mad l...
Spoilers herein.We have to take this seriously, because it comes from the writer of someofthe best films in history. But he has directed only a few projects, andheknows enough to keep them cardboard cutout simple. Sports and sexcompetitors for the soul in the real world, but Towne's world is afantas...
Considering the risk of showing same-sex relationships before the late1980's, Personal Best could have done better to play the same-sexrelationship between Hemingway (Chris Cahill) and Donnelly (Tory Skinner) asa more than experimental phase of Cahill's life.It seems to me that the creators of this ...
