Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film's great achievement is to reveal the relentless way in which coaches and recruiters refuse to see Arthur and William as anything other than social cliches.
Fresh: It's about three hours long. But it moves like Isiah, fast and smooth, and it's over in a heartbreak.
Fresh: A prodigious achievement that conveys the fabric of modern American life, aspirations and incidentally, sports, in close-up and at length, Hoop Dreams is a documentary slam dunk.
Fresh: An ironic drama so beautifully sculpted it could be transposed without alteration into a fictional film.
