You either bring it or you don't, and directors Robert "Bobbito" Garcia and Kevin Couliau know how to do it.
Daunting though it may be for the aspiring pick-up entrant, this is a fun and worthwhile ode to one of New York's greatest summer pastimes.
"Doin' It" bounces like a crossover dribble, gliding swiftly and surely through interviews, videos and history lessons, then transitioning to today's dedicated ballers and playground culture.
Whether or not you play yourself, Doin' It in the Park is as involving as an afternoon on the court, and just about as much fun.
Doin' It In The Park thrives simply via its myriad sights of nobodies juking and dunking their way past opponents, exuding an authentic for-love-of-the-game competitiveness that's as infectious as it is intense.
An irresistibly entertaining, uplifting, well-edited tribute to the subculture of pick-up basketball in NYC.
Documentary about New York street basketball offers great technical quality and admirably insider interviews, but celebrates the subject unquestioningly, without a larger context.
