The Last Dance ★★★★★

What it takes to be god.

Somehow manages to elevate arguably the most larger-than-life athlete to ever play professional sports to even taller Herculean heights, while in the same breath deconstructing his legacy in an attempt to humanize him.

An insane task for any filmmaker to accomplish, and yet executed with the elegance and efficiency of Phil Jackson's triangle offense. The Last Dance isn't just a documentary about Michael Jordan. It's an operatic dive into an icon's talent and psyche, and rise against every external factor looking to dismantle or detract from him.
