Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...a deeply interesting, if conventionally structured and unflashy, documentary ... about the reassertion of national identity after generations of foreign oppression and the role of sport in nation building.

You don't have to give a hoot about basketball to enjoy this movie. This is a movie about identifying with, admiring and responding to achievement in any form.

Here's a twist on the plucky underdog sports movie. The Other Dream Team adds rock 'n' roll and eastern European history to the rah-rah mix.

In an era when so much of the focus in sports is on the glam and the glitz, it's nice to be reminded that it can still be about heart and soul, too.

The Other Dream Team becomes less a simple paean to the triumph of the human spirit and more an admission of life's complexity and messiness.

The Other Dream Team wasn't the 1992 Lithuanian Basketball movie that I necessarily wanted, but it could absolutely be the 1992 Lithuanian Basketball movie that you want, assuming you want such a thing.

"The Other Dream Team" is a saga of hope, courage and overcoming adversity and how a sport and its players helped a nation rekindle its voice and place on the world stage.

If you root for documentaries with heart, "The Other Dream Team" is a slam dunk.

This true-life sports story has a little of the same magic "Hoosiers" has.

...a story that should be heard and remembered, because it reminds you that sometimes a sporting event carries meaning far outside the confines of the sport itself.

Adding detailed historical context, the quirky feel-good story becomes a tragedy and a lesson. And that makes the victories resonate even more.

Clearly, there's a story here. The documentary "The Other Dream Team" tells it in a smart, lively, if somewhat hectic fashion.

An inspirational if overly talkative new documentary that lives at the intersection of nationalism and sport.

Markevicius tells this incredible yarn through the significantly less exciting format of an ESPN-style doc, which gets the job done with minimal flourish.

Markevicius vividly paints an inspiring picture of a group of men overcoming great political hurdles in order to bring pride back to a country that had been broken for decades and blaze a path for future generations.

The title may be less than creative and the bare-bones plot synopsis hardly feels compelling, yet the documentary offers a fascinating and heartfelt examination of history through the microcosm of one sport.
