  1. One of the rare documentaries you leave wishing it was a little bit longer.
  2. 85
    Slick without feeling over-determined, Racing Dreams evokes -- just as, oddly enough, "Toy Story 3" does -- the more general feeling of childhood on the precipice.

    The perceptively balanced "Dreams" transitions seamlessly from domestic drama to 70-mph heats.
  4. The perfect answer to cries of "I'm bored," Marshall Curry's outstanding documentary won't just entertain your family for a little while. It'll also inspire everyone to get back outside, and find a new passion.
  5. 75
    It can get a bit redundant but always remains interesting, as young lives take shape on an asphalt oval.
  6. 75
    It’s a darned entertaining way to get a handle on a sport that can seem like a bunch of cars doing circles for a crowd that seems most interested in seeing that next epic wreck.
  7. Curry also emphasizes the human drama of the kid drivers who face their own distinct challenges and setbacks in order to become champions.
