  • That the first half of the film is largely older footage (previously shot for an earlier project by Adam Shopkorn) endows it with wistfulness. No matter how merry the events, they're obviously distant fragments of a broken dream.

  • Filmmakers Benny and Josh Safdie use real-time footage to follow this hopeful, affable young man as he becomes a bitter has-been over the course of a decade.

    December 19, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A compellingly unconventional, elliptical sports documentary that explores the mysterious realm of might-have-been.

    December 12, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Like a dismaying coming-of-age movie in which little is learned beyond the fickle chemistry between dreams and business.

    December 5, 2013 | Full Review…
  • It's a small film, but as a cautionary tale? Swish!

    December 5, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a spirited experiment in documentary form, with the directors showing great imagination in their fusion of new and archival footage, and their portrait of Cooke, assembled largely from offhand moments, conveying a sharp dramatic sensibility.
