This is an outstanding film, based on an even more outstanding work by Taylor Branch. It discusses the history, and current status, of "student-athletes" within the NCAA structure at major football and basketball colleges in the US. Some reviewers argue that the film calls for paying "amateur" college athletes, but while this idea is voiced, in fact the film simply points out the inequities that exist and calls for starters for doing what can be done without causing too much immediate disruption -- giving "student-athletes" a voice amongst all the other vested interests in the NCAA committee structures.
Before one dismisses the film as biased or unbalanced against the status quo, it should be noted that In his memoirs written in 1995 ("Unsportsmanlike Conduct: Exploiting College Athletes," University of Michigan Press), Walter Byers, the founding executive director and decades-long iron fist behind the NCAA, convincingly argued for some, if not all, of the potential remedies addressed in the film.
Whether or not one agrees with the film's premise that something is wrong with economics behind high-level college sports, the film deserves a look. It provides an interesting historical look at the development of college "amateur" sports, and pulls together various important voices on all sides of the issue. Sadly, the NCAA leadership did not wish to include itself amongst these voices.
I will leave my comments brief, and note that one can easily find any number of on-line reviews published by many of the leading newspapers.
