Terrific Documentary That's Fun and Tense

30 for 30: There's No Place Like Home (2012)

**** (out of 4)

Incredibly fun documentary about the auction of James Naismith's original, two-page notes with the rules of basketball. A die-hard Kansas Jayhawks fan finds out that these legendary papers are going to be auctioned off so he heads out to try and find someone to come up with the millions to win them and return them to Kansas. Josh Swade is that fans name and I must admit that I thought he was downright crazy but in an incredibly good way. Coming from Kentucky in understand people like Josh because there are many fans here who would do whatever they could for their school. I think if you're not a fan of sports then you'll probably be confused by everything in this film but those who understand the passion should love it. The entire film was just one incredibly tense journey as Josh tries to get someone to cough up millions of dollars to get this document. We see him interview boosters, former Kansas coaches like Roy Williams and Larry Brown and then things take a sharp turn as more supporting players come in. The auction sequence is without question one of the most tense moments you're going to see from any documentary and the entire film is a just a tremendous ride. The Kansas Hall of Fame should certainly put this movie on display and I'm sure that the Duke hatred will grow even deeper. Any sport fan certainly owes it to themselves to check this film out as it's one of the best out there.
