All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

An amiable if hopelessly scattered documentary about the significance of 'the ball' as both concept and object.

The film is certainly interesting, despite the fact that it's a glorified promotional video for Muniz's installations.

While the first third is promising ... the subsequent hour is scattershot.

Top Critic

There is a fantastic documentary within This Is Not a Ball, begging to burst onto the screen. As a result, the film is worth it for the touching moments, though more fully realized explorations on poverty and the means of escape it already exist.

Audience Reviews for This Is Not A Ball


Some very good stuff within this Televisa-produced doc, but it's scattershot, covers more ground than it should -- and not adequately, given its scope -- and gets tedious in places. Not even a must for soccer fans, unlike "Next Goal Wins," the 2014 World Cup film to see.
