30. 'Into the Wind' (Dir. Steve Nash and Ezra Holland)

Though sports movies often get tagged as "tearjerkers for men," 30 for 30 has only occasionally gone the sentimental route. One of the most effectively heart-tugging episodes tells the story of Terry Fox, an amputee who became a hero in his native Canada when he ran from Newfoundland to British Columbia to raise money for cancer research. Co-directed by basketball star Steve Nash and narrated by Taylor Kitsch – both Canadians – Into the Wind is as deeply felt as it is moving.
