No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson (2010)
Critic Reviews for No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson
It's a wonderful film, one of the best of this terrific film series, and I highly recommend it.
James brilliantly investigates the seams of identity, race, and community strained by Iverson's trial, conviction, and subsequent pardon, with an added charge from his own ties to home.
A lot of 30 for 30 episodes deal with the uncomfortable realities of the racial conflicts and biases that run beneath organized sports, but No Crossover is the bluntest about how often the cheers for black athletes stop when they leave the court.
The film has the extraordinary quality of being simultaneously clarifying and murky, and that's just great journalism on James' part.
Score another win for vet filmmaker Steve James, who takes a personal approach to examining all aspects of a racially charged incident in his hometown of Hampton, Va., with "No Crossover: The Trail of Allen Iverson."
