Sound on Sight Radio #259: Four Sports Docs For People Who Don’t Care About The Super Bowl

- Advertisement -

ESPN’s 30 for 30 – a collection of 30 documentaries by 30 filmmakers crated to commemorate the sports network’s thirtieth anniversary – has finally hit DVD, and with the help of special guest Mike Waldman, we’re going to discuss four of its more memorable entries. First up is Peter Berg’s King’s Ransom, an account of Wayne Gretsky’s fateful move from the Edmonton Oilers to the Los Angeles Kings; Winning Time, Dan Klores’ hugely entertaining portrait of the Knicks vs. Pacers rivalry, headed by the incomparable Reggie Miller; The Two Escobars, Jeff and Michael Zimbalist’s epic account of corruption, glory, and death in and around Columbian soccer in the days of Pablo Escobar; and finally, The Birth of Big Air, the story of BMX pioneer Mat Hoffman’s quest to push the limits of physics – and his body – in order to scale the skies, directed by Jeff Tremaine.

Editor’s note: Of you want to know more about Pablo Escobar’s Hippo problem, than you can read more about it here.
