Peter Baxter's sociological sports documentary Wild in the Streets details the annual Shrovetide Football game played in the English city of Ashbourne. The game has been played for centuries and involves using the entire town as the playing field. Two goals are set up three miles apart from each other, and teams score every time they can get the ball into those areas. However, there are strict rules about how the ball can be transported. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

"Tasteless cult teen classic about counterculture youths beating down the establishment to elect one of their own as a 24-year-old president."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"An amazing document, but inept ..."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Truly wild in '68, even now an acid high Shelley Winters is unique"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"If it's taken as satire, it's passable. If it's taken seriously, forget it."
