by Adam Nayman

The L Magazine, Dec 31, 2014

Review of experimental documentary From Deep by Brett Kashmere, including comments from the filmmaker himself. The article describes the film's subjective approach (borrowing from the structure of mix-tapes and blogs) to the history of hip-hop culture in the NBA from the 1980s to the present day. From Deep expresses both a criticism of conservative tendencies of the NBA and the filmmaker's personal love for basketball.
