Hoop Dreams, seemingly inadvertently, becomes a fascinating record of individual maturity and adolescent evolution, physically as well as psychologically.

What is the value of black life? Few films have posed this question so insistently, and so thoroughly, as Hoop Dreams. The film was an unlikely success, achieving both critical acclaim and crossover box-office appeal despite its three hours. More importantly, Hoop Dreams enlarged the scale of what a socially engaged documentary could be: probing and comprehensive, intimate and grand, thrilling and devastating. It did so by placing the matter of black lives in the center of the screen.

The film is an epic, not only in its scope, but also in its accumulation of detail and its sense of character. One comes to read the film simultaneously on both of the levels Ebert mentions, yet it never feels challenging or intellectual. The Dickensian storytelling simply immerses you in the characters’ experience so fully that it feels like the American narrative in miniature.
