Great Movie
5 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

A tight little parable set in a playground basketball court in which the devil challenges a guy working on his jump shot to a game to ten. It's imaginative and swiftly paced and the basketball is amazingly clever and well-done. The director is an actual Christian and wears a cross, so it's not just a creepy play off a Christian text, but is an insider's movie. I met the director and the star at a film festival in the Catskills. Great people.

The film is very short - only about eleven minutes. But the costuming is very nice, and the playground is a jewel - a kind of box canyon playground on a bright summer's day in Long Island. What I remember is how crazy the devil is in the film - an amazing dribbler who can do impressive feats. Luis da Silva has been in Nike commercials. Many ballers do not think this is real basketball because that's not how people play in the NBA. But it's a fictional movie, and the dribbling is nightmarishly tricky. Quite a fun film, and everyone has to face the devil, and beat him, in order to have a decent life.
