Storyline

The parallel baseball careers and lives of former New York superstars Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry are treated as Shakespearean tragedy in this uniquely styled documentary. The character study features applicable readings from the playwright's works intertwined with comments from sports journalists, including Keith Olbermann, Len Berman and the late Dick Schaap. Topics covered include Gooden's and Strawberry's difficult childhoods in Tampa and Los Angeles, respectively; their meteoric rise and fall with the Mets in the 1980s; their battles with drug addiction and legal troubles; and their resurfacing in the Big Apple as Yankees in the mid-1990s. Written by Stephen Palgon

Well Worth Seeing for a variety of reasons
21 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most exceptional documentaries I have seen done. Sports or otherwise. It is a creative concept with the Shakespearean element, but extremely successful not only in implementing it, but in its execution of it.

This documentary is equipped with commentaries, highlight footage, narration and thorough journalism.

The comprehensive coverage of both athletes from youth to present adds to the quality of the work and makes it not only intriguing to follow but memorable as well. An excellent work, well worth seeing in an age where young athletes are so drawn to a variety of temptations.
