Directed by Spike Lee | 1998

With Denzel Washington, Ray Allen

"Spike Lee celebrates basketball as the apotheosis of black-American glory without lying about the game’s effect on the black community. The movie is startlingly candid. "
—David Denby, New York Magazine

In prison for killing his wife, Jake (Washington, extraordinary per usual) gets a deal from the state: convince his high-school basketball star son Jesus (NBA great Allen) to play for the governor’s favorite college team, and Jake will find himself on the fast track to freedom. But he’s got a long way to go in repairing his damaged relationship with Jesus first. Lee pulls out all the stylistic stops in this electric sports drama that crackles with visceral hoops scenes, a vibrant Coney Island setting, and a soundtrack that rocks both Public Enemy and Aaron Copland.
