Yes, I only listened to segments of it (though I think I listened to more on this one) but what I heard makes it easy for me to state it's an excellent commentary and worth listening to.
Reviewed by: Chris Galloway Directed By: Frederick Marx, Steve James, Peter Gilbert 1994 | 171 Minutes | Licensor: New Line Home Entertainment Release Information DVD | MSRP: $29.95 | Series: The Criterion Collection | Edition: #289 | Two ordinary inner-city kids dare to dream the impossible - professional basketball glory - in this epic chronicle of hope and faith.
Filmed over a five-year period, Hoop Dreams follows young Arthur Agee and William Gates as they navigate the complex, competitive world of scholastic athletics while striving to overcome the intense pressures of family life and the realities of their Chicago streets.
I listened to about over an hour of each one, skipping through using the index of the commentary tracks that Criterion has set up (oh how I wish every company did this.) But I can safely say that based on the just over two-hours in total I spent on the commentaries that these are both excellent commentaries, or I just got lucky and hit all the good parts.
I am definitely coming back to them when I get the chance.
The Criterion Collection is proud to present this landmark documentary chronicling two remarkable families who challenge the American dream.
Forum members rate this film 8.2/10 Criterion presents Hoop Dreams in the aspect ratio of 1.33:1 on this dual-layer disc.But it's also worth watching just to remind you how much better the show was when Gene was on it. You get a music video of the film's title song, made to promote the film's soundtrack.You also get two theatrical trailers, one which was made to appeal to the "heartstrings" of white Middle-America and another to appeal to young African-American males.While this is definitely the best the film has looked, it has a few issues, the big one being the fact its interlaced.This of course presents all sorts of issues, including ghosting and jagged edges just to name a few.From what I listened to it was definitely an excellent track as the three talked about the shoot and it gives an excellent insight into the making of the film.The second commentary is, I'm happy to say, just as good.It features the subjects of the film, Arthur Agee and William Gates.It's presented in an interesting way, with Arthur coming from the front right speaker, and William from the left.The film was originally shot on video and was intended, at first, to be a short for public access television.It then blew up to this rather large project and was picked up for theatrical distribution.
