Documentary On Jeremy Lin's Journey 'One Of The Most Crowd Pleasing' At Sundance Festival
Published January 24, 2013
GOOD REVIEWS: In a review in the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, Justin Lowe wrote the documentary has a "mix of personal interviews -- including extensive on-camera discussions with Lin, combined with more informal scenes -- home-video footage from Lin's childhood and clips from his high school and college careers, as well as game-play commentary from ESPN and other broadcasters." Leong has "assembled a film that's not just a stirring sports drama but also a classic immigrant-family success story, presented in an entirely new context." With Leong "skillfully orchestrating the interview segments" and actor DANIEL DAE KIM "narrating a voice-over that occasionally tends toward an overly dramatic tone, the film is attractively packaged and superlatively edited by GREG LOUIE." However, since the film's title "emphasizes public reaction to Lin's rise to stardom, some additional footage featuring fan reactions and social media trends would have been welcome" (HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, 1/21).
