Which Merckx film is best?
Le Course en Tete?
Starts & Watercarriers?
A Sunday in Hell?
other?

Tough one. You get more 'from the peloton' feel with S and W, but their all good.

I like Sunday in Hell, but it wasn't a good Merckx race.... a bit late in his career. I'd say one of the other two for Merckx-specific.

Sunday in Hell just for the raw steak breakfast narrator comment.

i own all of those and they are all good films. i would say that, if your focus in merckx, le course en tete is the best.

You will never beat the commentary on the flat TT in S and W. 'Priceless poetry' indeed.
