A film about guys many people love to hate!
18 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

ESPN'S "30 for 30" series is interesting. It is made up of a bunch of sports-related films of varying lengths by many different filmmakers--all of which seem REALLY skilled at telling a story. In the case of "The Dotted Line", however, I was more interested in seeing this one than usual because it was written, directed and narrated by Morgan Spurlock--a VERY interesting young filmmaker. While I was only moderately impressed by his "Super-Size Me", his other recent film "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold" is simply one of the best documentaries I've ever seen--and I have seen probably a couple thousand.

Spurlock's focus is on the benefits of the often-hated sports agent. And, while I despise the impact that agents have had on the game, he makes a very compelling argument for them. In addition, I have long realized that the agents are PAID to be greedy and most of the problem rests on owners who pay players so much that many fans simply can no longer afford to attend games. But, as I said, he's very compelling and makes some excellent arguments. Plus, if we are a capitalist system, what is more capitalist than this system where greed is good. A challenging and well-reasoned film that tends to humanize people who many fans love to hate. Well worth seeing.
