Hoop Dreams: The Great American Documentary

November 5, 2009 was the 15th anniversary of the film Hoop Dreams. Roger Ebert had this to say about the film:

Today, fifteen years after I first saw it, I believe “Hoop Dreams” is the great American documentary. No other documentary has ever touched me more deeply. It was relevant then, and today, as inner city neighborhoods sink deeper into the despair of children murdering children, it is more relevant.

I’ve only seen the film once and found it fascinating. It’s time to watch it again. If you’ve never seen this film then it’s time to get the Hoop Dreams DVD and see what all the fuss is about.
