‘Hoop dreams’ is a much hyped and well known documentary from 1994, which Steve James directed and co-wrote with Frederick Marx.

This particular film traces the lives of William Gates and Arthur Agee, two young Chicago basketball players over the span of 5 years, highlighting the prominent highs and the significant lows that are characteristics of a sporting life.

Though this film ended up being unsuccessful in receiving an Academy Award nomination in the Document category, it is probably the finest films that treaded into the unchartered territory of checking out the triumphant and heart-aching downs of dreams simultaneously.

The film starts with their preparation to enter Saint. Joseph’s, the predominantly white Catholic high school graduation that helped shape NBA tale Isiah Thomas. The pressures and the incredibly long odds experienced by the athletes, have been critically investigated by James balancing the particular triumphs and suspense with pathos — including Arthur Agee’s return to a high school in the inner city.

Although there’s ample thrilling basketball footage, the most dramatic moments of the particular film are captured in Gates and Agee’s off-the-court ordeals.
