Critic Reviews for Lenny Cooke
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.
A compellingly unconventional, elliptical sports documentary that explores the mysterious realm of might-have-been.
Like a dismaying coming-of-age movie in which little is learned beyond the fickle chemistry between dreams and business.
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.
Audience Reviews for Lenny Cooke
Showtime 2/10/14 The hand held camera was a little distracting but the story was good. Ignorance, environment, posses, family, lack of work ethic and a thousand other distractions can be the moral of this story. Wasted talent is an all too common story in ghetto basketball/life.
