Hoop Dreams, the 1994 documentary about two Chicago teens frantically chasing their NBA dreams, can now be seen on Hulu for free. Granted, there will be commercial interruptions, but for people who have not seen this fantastic documentary and don't want to shell out twenty bucks to blind buy the Criterion Collection DVD, this movie can't be missed. As an example of how powerful this film is, here's what Jason Kilar, the CEO of Hulu, has to say about the film on his blog:
Please, if you have not seen this film, take the time to watch it. You won't regret it. It is a story that is painful and uplifting at the same time. And in my opinion, it possesses perhaps the most poignant and unvarnished line uttered in a documentary over the past 15 years.
