A documentary-sport series that follows the period of 1990s for the Chicago Bulls team. With the leader, Michael Jordan, this team presented such a popular period for the NBA. The series also hosts some big names of basketball.
The Last Dance is an intoxicating trip into the way-back machine. More broadly, though, the project is a thoughtful look at the costs associated with stardom and how they've evolved in the modern sports era, particularly in the NBA.
Much like Jordan himself, The Last Dance is unrelenting in its quest for greatness. If you're a fan of the Chicago Bulls, you'll love it. If you hate the Chicago Bulls, you'll also love it. Long story short, you'll love it.
The lack of commentary on the wider society feels like a missed opportunity. But "The Last Dance" offers the best and most intimate look at how Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls dominated the sports world in the 1990s.
