    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.

    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.

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

    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.
