Crossover | Chicago Reader


This 2004 basketball documentary, shot in the U.S., Europe, Africa, and Taiwan, sees the game as uniting individuals across national boundaries. The business side is here—we see players chosen for an NBA draft and learn that one who tried very hard was later cut—but the core message is that a passion for basketball will reward all who are “true to the game,” even those who add hip-hop moves that can cost them a win. Kip and Kern Konwiser mix playground games, professional ball, and a spirited narration by Chuck D to suggest that basketball has an almost mystical power to lift players out of themselves regardless of the material rewards. 84 min.
