    The 90-minute HBO documentary, one of the very best in a long line of standouts, is in no way a pity party for Flood.

    A strong documentary that examines a sympathetic yet imperfect character while admitting it's impossible to pin down his precise impact on history.

    The Curious Case of Curt Flood isn't perfect, but when a documentary can bring sports, culture and politics together the way this one does, score that as a home run.

    Despite whatever aesthetic limitations it may have, The Curious Case of Curt Flood manages to tell a solidly complete version of the story over its 90 minutes, resisting the temptation to make this a simple hagiography.
