The Other Dream Team

JOY REVIEW

The Other Dream Team is an interesting historical document, because it talks about the Soviet basketball team that beat the US, except that of the five starring players, four of them were Lithuanian, and they really objected to being called Soviets. The film documents that whole period of time after World War II, and Stalin, and Lithuania being one of the satellites, and the sports teams, and the Lithuanian player who played in the United States, and yadda yadda. I found it a more interesting piece of historical film than it is a documentary because it becomes very redundant. But for that, two and a half stars.
