Jim Brown: All-American

2002 NR

Spike Lee paints a picture of an icon on and off the field in this documentary that charts the rise of football superstar Jim Brown. Juxtaposing scenes from Brown's favorite movies (which include "The Dirty Dozen" and "Ice Station Zebra") with sports footage and interviews of teammates, relatives, friends and even enemies (as well as with the man himself), Lee delivers a touchdown tribute to a complicated and dynamic man.
