CHIVAS: El Rebaño Sagrado is a good documentary. Recommend if you’re a sports fan or looking for a documentary to watch. It kept my interest throughout even though soccer isn’t my typical watch. 4 ½ stars.
The cameras follow the team throughout the film and some of subjects covered are; training, games, family/personal lives, agents, on the road, coaches, injuries, recruiting the players at a young age and how they handle it, media coverage (good and bad), competition between players on their own team, teamwork, the drug scandals, how the pandemic affected the team, the pressure on everyone involved, fans, and owners (son takes over when father passes away).
Parental guidance/trigger warnings: some swearing (most is in the first episode), death of team’s owner, drugs (doping, cocaine), fighting (on the field by players and in the stands by fans).
