Declared as the best film of 1994, Hoop Dreams is celebrated for its considerable achievement though the author admits to not having revisited it frequently.

Hoop Dreams is a 1994 American documentary film directed by Steve James, and produced by Frederick Marx, James, and Peter Gilbert, with Kartemquin Films. It follows the story of two African-American high school students in Chicago and their dream of becoming professional basketball players. Despite its length (171 minutes) and unlikely commercial genre, it received high critical and popular acclaim.
