An underappreciated sports movie (it is more known for Madonna’s hit song, Crazy for You, which was on the soundtrack) Vision Quest was the story of Louden Swain (Matthew Modine) and the standard coming of age of story of an eighteen year old trying to find himself. For him, (in addition to getting the girl) making that mark is challenging the top wrestler (Brian Shute) in the region. It gives us the sports moments we want, with Swain putting himself through physical torture to make the weight to contest against Shute. The end (spoiler alert) has Swain win over Shute at the last second in perfect sports drama. We don’t think this entry will get a lot of support, but it probably should receive a little more than it will.
