DVD review: ‘Linsanity’ is still worth catching
First Published Jan 04 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Jan 04 2014 01:01 am

Grade • A-

DVD • "Linsanity" is a story that is so Hollywood, if it weren’t true it would be laughed out of theaters. And filmmaker Evan Jackson Leong has made a very good documentary about a great story. Great stories, as a matter of fact.

This is the story of Jeremy Lin, an underdog basketball player who made good. It’s a story of racism. A story of faith. A story of a down-to-his-last-chance player who — after years of struggles — became an overnight sensation.

And, more than anything, the story of a nice guy who becomes a hero. This was the feel-good movie of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. And the fact that it’s a real story is the most unbelievable thing about "Linsanity."
