"Ball Don't Lie" plays out over one day in the life of Sticky, a skinny 17-year-old high school junior and basketball prodigy from Venice, California. Burdened with emotional scars from early life tragedy, a callous foster care system, and Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder, Sticky manages to transcend his limitations whenever he has a ball in his hands.

Handcuffed to a story with no internal development and without the stylistic rigor to transform its jerky stop-and-start rhythm into an aesthetic, pic jumps from one disconnected scene to another.
Less a movie than a sadomasochistic plot party where every conceivable contrivance of teenage woe is asphyxiated to the brink of orgasm and then abandoned to gasp for air and soothe its throbbing vitals.
Kim Hidalgo gives a notable performance as Sticky's girlfriend Anh-thu, but it's Boucher's slow-burn intensity and unmistakable basketball skills that drive this entertaining independent drama.
