About the Movie
From director Rory Owen Delaney and producer Wm. Wade Smith comes The Rivalry: Red V. Blue, the first movie to document college basketball's ultimate rivalry - University of Louisville vs. University of Kentucky. The film weaves current events, including back-to-back national championships in 2012 and 2013, with the intriguing history of a rivalry game that didn't even exist for decades. From 1959 to 1983, the two basketball teams refused to meet on the hard court! Red V. Blue features interviews with coaches, players and personalities, including Denny Crum, Joe Hall, Derek Anderson, Luke Whitehead, Jim Host and John Y. Brown, among many others. The movie also documents the real lives of super fans such as Mark Wagner and Robert Boone, two rival barbers whose hilarious banter epitomizes what makes this rivalry the most passionate in college basketball. The movie is a must-see for any true sports fan!
If you like sports docs!
OK…I loved this movie. I am a big sports doc junkie….this is one of my top favs now.
the OFFICIAL story of this great college rivalry!
I don’t usually go for sports docs but Red V. Blue isn’t your usual sports flick. It tells the story of one of the greatest existing rivalries today. You cannot help but be drawn into the larger than life backdrop for some truly larger than life characters. While in no way does the film set out to make a statement about any of its subjects, one fact remains true: people from Kentucky truly are nuts. Of course, these nuts are more like pistachios…the proverbial Queen Bee of the Nut.
This highly entertaining story is best served with a neat Kentucky Bourbon. And cashews.
Highly enjoyable on many levels
When I started watching The Rivalry Red v Blue, I didn't have any prior knowledge of the feud in question or how far back it goes. While I enjoy watching the NCAA tournament every year, I'm not what you would call a sports fan. However, I appreciate film of every genre that is well made, and was pleased with how engaging this film was. It wasn't your stock sports doc because it keeps your interest throughout and contains interesting visuals as well. This film is also very polished for an independent film and I'd recommend it to my friends.
