Hoop Dreams (1994)

Three guys, five years, and two boys who want to play basketball for the
NBA.  That's the story of HOOP DREAMS, the outstanding documentary about
two inner-city African Americans (William Gates and Arthur Agee) who
started from the same spot on their rocky road to basketball fame.

Filmmakers Peter Gilbert, Steve James, and Frederick Mark spent five
years following the boys through high school and into college.  They
shot 250 hours of videotape at an estimated $750,000, and they may just
get an Oscar for their efforts.  Great as a sports film, enthralling as
a drama.  You can't take you eyes off it.

Grade: A
