The Hoop Dreams of 2007
2 April 2007 | by advocate70See all my reviews

This movie is a must see for every woman out there. It is a story of women getting together to do something without men, but at the same time finding that women can be as insensitive and self-interested as any man. The issues of the ownership of the means of production are as acute in this league as they were in the the NFL, MLB, and NBA in the 70s & 80s, but on a scale that keeps it right at home.

The girls (err, I mean women, of course!) take over a man's idea, but find that effort alone is not enough to overcome the hostilities from within of the have-nots. Eventually it is a proletariat revolt that makes you want to go pick up a hammer and anvil. This is an excellent movie, and should be up for all of the documentary awards this year.

Bravo.
