A sport film is an incredibly popular movie genre which makes use of sport as the main theme of the entire film. It’s a fictional production in which a sport, particular sport, event, fan of a certain sport, or participant of sport are heavily involved, and that often rely on sport for their major plot point resolution or motivation. There are literally hundreds of different kinds of films that make use of sport, and it’s an incredibly broad genre. The kinds of films are often called sport fictions, or movie sports. There are even films that take place entirely within the sport itself – a competition within the sport itself.
One of the most popular and widely known examples of this genre is the Michael Lewis’ “Lolita” film trilogy. In these films, Lewis plays a serial killer who murders young women because she is seen as a lesbian. While he does this in a way that makes him sympathetic, there is more to his personality than that. For instance, in the first film, he kills the women because he feels like they are teasing him. In the second film, he kills them because they ridiculed him for being a recluse. It’s clear that the reason why he is so capable of such violence is because it’s a reaction to the things that make him feel isolated within his own mind – and within the world he inhabits.
This same idea applies to action movies. In many of the best films of this era, we see a type of protagonist whose personality is defined by their sport. In the most famous example of this, Clint Eastwood’s character in the “Unforgiven” series. In this film, he is an individual who is deeply interested in a sport, one which he takes very seriously. He is the star of his own film, and almost every scene with him involves him engaged in some form of physical activity. He doesn’t only take his sport seriously; he enjoys it.
Similarly, there are characters who are strongly attracted to activities that require high levels of skill, such as fencing and billiards. These characters are typically loners, preferring to pursue their dreams by themselves. In these films, the sport is an important part of their lives. In fact, they often regard the sport itself as their true calling. They don’t just take it as a hobby; they believe that it defines them, their ability to be individualistic, and their commitment to their personal interests.
Finally, there are characters who are characters that would fit into the sports genre but don’t necessarily participate in it. These could be sportswomen, but they frequently are depicted with scant allure – as the sport itself is not often seen onscreen. Instead, they are depicted as being unattached or as having an interest in something unrelated to sport. Often, this can make for an interesting and compelling character, but it’s not really a part of the main story.
The film industry has been focusing increasingly on character study for many years. This has been an important focus since film studies have revealed that most viewers identify with the characters they see on screen. If your character isn’t relatable, you aren’t likely to generate large numbers of audience responses. As such, it is important to understand how to write about a character, what kind of personality you should create, and how to use film language to show off your character’s strengths and share some of his flaws. By taking an introspective look at the nature of character study, film makers can help create characters that both audiences and other filmmakers will identify with and connect with.
