    ★½

    No idea what happened or why.

    I'm not american, I don't understand the NBA so more explanations would be welcome. The film wasn't bad but since I wasn't able to follow the plot there was nothing in it for me. And I don't really care that this was made with an iphone other than the lighting was weird at times.
