"BIG BLUE" - The NYC Handball Documentary. Directed by Justin Sullivan

 

Movie Review by James Russo, Handball City  (see above link for entire review)

"Being an advent Handball player and fan of this sport, I had very high expectations walking into the movie theater. Expectations so high, that I might be disappointed. I wanted Big Blue Handball to be portrayed correctly in this film. I think many of the handball players who showed up for the screening felt the same way.

 

The world premier for this film had no red carpets or movie stars. It did have the most exciting players of one-wall Big Blue Handball and fans of this great city sport. NYU's Cantor Film Center was sold out for the fist time in its history for a documentary. This showed much support for a sport that usually gets no respect.

 

Once the movie started I could not even turn my head from the screen, it was like a magnet. The movie blended humor and street culture very well. It also gave some insight on the history of Big Blue Handball. The movie focused on the top players of this sport, John "Rookie" Wright, Angel Marquez, Buddy Gantt, and Joe Durso."
