This documentary is simple yet intricately brilliant. Without needing explicit discussion, we take a roller coaster ride amidst questions about race, role models, the vicarious expectations of family and school programs, inequality, fatherhood, and much more. This was Boyhood 20 years ahead of its time. You couldn't write a better story than this.

From what I understand of my little experience with documentaries is that they aim to create a portrait. Sometimes it's in the form of a historical figure, sometimes a social issue. Other times it is two black boys and their respective families growing up with dreams and aspirations of playing basketball at the highest level. It isn't just about basketball though. It's about what the sport means, how it ceases to be a sport and becomes what people live and breathe by.

The larger message is obviously a very moving one but the subtle message about how many POC with immense talent have been swept by/jailed b/c of the poverty/racism is one that really cuts deep.

Reading about the future lives of these people after watching this was seriously depressing. An excellent documentation of the disillusion of American dreaming and the beauty of appreciating the moment instead.

A true documentary filmed over a period of years following its subject on a journey and simply capturing it all - the development, the emotions, the failures and successes, joy and struggle. The subject matter was not particularly interesting to me, so it was a struggle to watch. For anyone interested in urban youth, basketball or sports biographies this will be a gem.

How can a three hour documentary about kids playing basketball be so compelling? Well, mainly because we get to see a unique and tremendously thorough portrayal of the struggle to get out of the ghetto. Due to the long running time and likeable protagonists the result is a documentary that is often more suspenseful than any thriller. Drama is abundant and the ups and downs hit you even harder because reality is simply much more fucked up than any form of fiction.
