Hoop Dreams (1994)
25 years on from its initial release, Hoop Dreams, remains one of the greatest documentaries ever made. Telling the story of two African-American students striving to improve their lives through basketball, the film launched a new type of sports documentary that delved deeper, casting light on contemporary society
The movie is “not only a documentary,” film critic Roger Ebert wrote in 1994. “It is also poetry and prose, muckraking and expose, journalism and polemic. It is one of the great moviegoing experiences of my lifetime. … Hoop Dreams contains more actual information about life as it is lived in poor black city neighborhoods than any other film I have ever seen.”
