• “I’m being toyed with by a bunch of depraved children” – Nicholas, in “The Game”

This is the weekend of “The Game”. No, not the film about a multi-millionaire loses everything including his life in order to completely fulfil it and find happiness (see trailer below). Though that would be most fitting and does belong in any “Embracing Failure” film list. No, I am referring to one of the oldest rivalries in sports – the Harvard v. Yale game. It turns out that the 1968 rendition of this legendary match-up is the subject of its own film treatment – see trailer above) which too earns a spot on the film list for its tale of legendary glory for failing to win a game.
