100 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Oct. 8 - Oct. 11, 2004 Gritty 'Friday Night Lights! has all the right moves By Rob Rector In the gritty world of small- town Texas high school football, you're only as good as your previ- ous game. The entire community of Odessa, Texas, hinges on whether their hometown team ends up in the "win" category, mostly be- cause their lives have ended in the "losses." While most high schoolers are worried more over zits immortal- ized on film, the players of the Permian Panthers carry the addi- tional burden of an entire town scrutinizing, analyzing and ago- nizing over their every move. Their missteps and triumphs be- come fodder for local talk radio for the entire week, their neigh- bors want them to pose for a pic- ture with their infant one week First Daughter: The presi- dent's daughter (Katie Holmes) is granted permission to attend col- lege without a Secret Service en- tourage. Trouble and romantic and yell obscenities at them from a passing car the next. "Cmon guys, we're only 17," one of the young gridiron heroes pleads to his friends. "I don't feel 17," the other sighs. Reminiscent of the painfully poignant documentary "Go Tigers!" (about another Midwest- ern high school football team struggling with the pressures of overzealous communal pride), "Friday Night Lights" is the sweat-soaked, mud-caked antithe- sis to the homogenized heroics of "Remember the Titans" or "Rudy."

When she meets a father who has another similar experience with his own disappearing daughter, the two team to explore the mys- prize winning journalist Buzz Sis- senger, which followed the 1988 Permian Panthers en route to the state championship title. BiLly Bob Thorton stars as coach G Ely Gains, a man who seems weaLh- ered by the cutthroat competiti' re- ness of both the fans and the lc- ulty (after all, he is making m)re than the school's principal), l tis stoic demeanor belies a beast in battle, rallying his troops with words of wisdom that sound earnest and inspiring. Thorto a's Gains is a contrast in characler. He's no saint, as he reluctantly fields players with career-threat- ening injuries, but he's also got a loving family which he is deter- mined to support.
