Critic Reviews for Racing Dreams
Curry's impressionable, charismatic young subjects are impossible not to care about.
That said, Racing Dreams is one of the rare documentaries you leave wishing it was a little bit longer.
Marshall Curry's sleek documentary captures the second-hand thrill of watching tweens hurtle at 70 mph around a blacktop, as it follows three potential superkarters over the course of a single season.
Directed by Marshall Curry (whose "Street Fight," about a corrupt Newark mayoral race, nabbed an Academy Award nomination), the perceptively balanced "Dreams" transitions seamlessly from domestic drama to 70-mph heats.
Curry documents the huge pressure placed on these children not only to succeed on the track, but to raise the money needed to continue.
