One of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen.
16 March 2011 | by millennium_criticSee all my reviews

This film was phenomenal. I was literally blown away by the impact it had on me. Growing up as a kid during all of this I remember vividly how wildly popular and influential The Fab Five was to American culture. They literally revolutionized basketball. Whether you like it or not. From the way they dressed, the way they walked, the way they talked, they way they played. Completely never seen before. The baggy shorts, the black socks, the ball heads in unison, the trash talking, the swagger, the pride, the flamboyance, it was hard to get any of this from professional teams much less FIVE FRESHMEN IN COLLEGE. Look at how the game is played today ON ANY LEVEL, look at how players dress, how they walk and talk about basketball.

I guarantee you it's an uncanny resemblance or two to these guys. And this documentary captured that magic effortlessly. And made you feel how INCREDIBLE HUGE what they did was. They dealt with racism, exploitation, ups, downs, sensationalism, and vanity. It is truly a remarkable once in the a lifetime story. And this was truly a once in a lifetime movie.

Incredible.
