Blue Chips ★★★

Action Bronson's free downloadable album of the same name brought Blue Chips to my attention, particulary one sample as Nick Nolte's unmistakable gruff voice tells sports reporter Ed that a bribe wasn't just any automobile, it was a fully loaded Lexus! It's a wonderful moment in what turned out to be a powerful performance. It's also the most realistic sports film I've seen with some great basketball action, directed by William Friedkin.
