On one level, Steve James' Hoop Dreams (1994), is about the lives of Arthur Agee and William Gates, two African-American kids from the inner city of Chicago who dream of making it to the NBA. At the same time, the movie is about determination & resilience, race & class, and American society & values. Easily one of my 10 favorite films of all time. This movie will change the way you think.
