From theehibachi ” If anyone doubts that the Harlem Globetrotters were incomparable athletes as well as world-class entertainers, this documentary will put them wise. The documentary features interviews with everyone from former Globetrotters and NBA coaches to Henry Kissinger. “The Team That Changed The World” lays out not only the development of the team itself – how original Globetrotters Marques Haynes and Reece “Goose” Tatum turned a sport into a form of vaudeville without sacrificing amazing displays of skill – but also the volatile racial politics of the 1930s, ’40s, and ’50s, when the Globetrotters were at their peak. In only an hour, the documentary argues persuasively that this basketball team, as they toured the world, became a symbol of racial progress and American good will. It’s not the same as seeing the Globetrotters live, but fans of these great performers will find this documentary a pleasure.

One begins to intuit the conditions of a ride, anticipating smooth stretches and knowing when to brace for a jarring turn. Through a series of familiar gestures, presented in commonplace locations in unfamiliar ways, we set out to challenge a habitual experience. ”
