    The Last Dance

    ★★★★★

    Without a doubt the best sports documentary I have seen. The strengths of The Last Dance can be found in the candid nature of the interviews, as well as the extraordinarily preserved footage from the Bulls '98 season.

In this regard, it feels really exciting that Endgame feels like closure for many storylines, almost as if the franchise has finally allowed itself an opportunity to exhale. Even though I didn't have much of an emotional reaction to this film, there's a lot that I loved about it's…
