Hoop Dreams (1994) - Steve James
On this day (October 14th) in 1994, ‘Hoop Dreams' was released to critical acclaim as one of the best documentaries of all-time. While essentially the movie is about 2 ball players (Arthur Agee and William Gates) on a quest to reach their dreams in basketball, underneath it all are also important messages about race, class, economic division, education, and American values. If you can, give it a view sooner than later.
Hoop Dreams (1994)
One of the best films I’ve ever seen, a masterpiece.
MUST WATCH : HOOP DREAMS
This is the best real life documentary film I have ever seen, and will probably ever see. The film follows two young Chicago teenagers over five years trying to make it to the NBA, on two very different paths. The film transcends sport by not only showing the manipulative cut-throat culture of American sport, but also giving a comprehensive view of inner city life and inter-family relationships. Heart-breaking, gut-wretching and more powerful than you can imagine, Hoop Dreams is an emotional roller coaster that you don’t want to get off even after three hours of watching.
