Love the people the director picked to interview. Wish there were more athletes or other great individuals but I really liked this movie and all the great ideas and things these athletes had to share

Though some of its insights might sound like common sense from the outside, the doc sees many places where they go against the grain; it's likely to provoke some aha moments even for viewers who couldn't care less about Super Bowls and World Cups.

A great doc from Polsky; one more assist from Gretzky.

Obviously, sports fans will get the most out of In Search of Greatness. But there are self-help tropes for everyone.
