Critic Reviews for Iverson
There is a fascinating story buried in Iverson... Director Zatella Beatty does her best to tease it out of her subject. But her greenness at the helm shows, as she relies heavily on a cloying score, obvious imagery, and a simplistic structure.
Iverson certainly chronicles the turbulent life of the point guard with great attention to personal detail, but its adherence to the standard "started from the bottom" narrative is disappointing.November 10, 2020 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
As a cultural document with ramifications beyond its star, Iverson is certainly worthwhile. It's in its determination to let its namesake put the best spin on things where the film occasionally takes its eye off the ball.
There's no clear-cut answer, but Beatty's film succeeds in that it shows you how kids, particularly young, African-American boys, are a product of their environment.
There are some really interesting social politics: the absence of the father figure in many Black communities, and the sense that sport is often the only way out of the ghettoJuly 8, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
