Dear Basketball (2017) Glen Keane

Recommended Posts





Essentially an infomercial for the basketball star’s own legacy, this short written, produced and narrated by Kobe Bryant benefits enormously from the hand-drawn talents of director Glen Keane, but that’s about the only thing of value it has to offer. Adapted from a 2015 letter Bryant himself wrote to announce his retirement from basketball — and styled as a love letter to the sport, which is as creaky a conceit as it sounds — the film is strangely free of conflict [or controversy], and even Bryant’s eventual mention of his plans to quit lands without any emotional weight.
