It uncovers a fascinating and largely forgotten chapter of the game's history that is well worth revisiting.
A valuable reminder that for nearly three decades, basketball was dominated by Jewish players -- and coaches who found the sport an ideal vehicle for assimilation in the United States.
When the history of the sport is allowed to unfold through the reminiscences of geriatric Yiddish pros, pic approaches the richness of its impressive archival trove. Too often, however, director David Vyorst's chauvinistic agenda intrudes.
The First Basket, a functional (if narrowly interesting) history lesson by the filmmaker David Vyorst, recollects the rich history of Jewish participation in basketball.
David Vyorst's comprehensive and celebratory documentary presents the stats in one easy-to-follow, nicely organized 86 minutes.
The First Basket is a moderately interesting documentary about a moderately interesting subject.
Filled with terrific archival footage, The Last Basket is engrossing and fun, but tends to go on a bit too long.
Unforgiveable are the kitschy, Photoshopped graphics that maddeningly mock the defenseless interviewees from the sidelines.
