‘The Last Dance‘, the long-awaited documentary about the reign of the 1998 Chicago Bulls championship team led by Michael Jordan, shattered viewership records—beating out shows like ‘The Office’ and ‘Chicago P.D.’ and further solidifying its role as one of the most viewed sports documentaries of all time.
Jordan, one of the top three athletes in the history of all sports, is documented in ‘The Last Dance’ from the beginnings of his career, through the NBA draft and his start in the late 1980’s, and his first foray into champion territory in the early 1990’s post-seasons. The documentary also dives into the careers of Coach Phil Jackson, Dennis Rodman, and Scottie Pippen.
The sheer will, discipline, greatness, and focus that drove Jordan and the Bulls throughout the 90’s is documented beautifully in ‘The Last Dance’. The interviews and editing are so well done that the two-hour viewing time feels like just minutes.
Survival is one of the main themes of ‘The Last Dance’. Jordan and his fellow champions overcame many obstacles to become the historical team they are, deservedly. It can provide a lesson to us all.
There’s no doubt about it: ‘The Last Dance’ is the greatest sports documentary of all time, period. There should be no more sports documentaries made after this. That’s it. We can shut it down now.
