Top Critics' Reviews

  • Fresh: "Top Spin" grips, exhilarates and breaks hearts like the 1994 film "Hoop Dreams." – Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times, Aug 20, 2015
  • Fresh: These "kids" turn out to be wiser than their years - wiser than most of us, probably - as they both win and lose with an enviable grace. – Chuck Wilson, Village Voice, Oct 20, 2015
  • Fresh: It's hard to imagine a film more formulaic than "Top Spin," but the formula is irresistible. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Aug 20, 2015
  • Fresh: Weary as I am of documentaries built around competitions, this one is charming because the three teens, especially the girls, are so radiantly intense about the sport. And yes, you doubters, it is a sport. – Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, Oct 30, 2015
