A movie filled to the brim with humanity

At it's core, Jump Shot is a biography film about Kenny Sailors. It's no surprise you don't know his name, and Kenny Sailors would be the last person to list his accomplishments; of which there are many. Marine, advocate for women's athletics, pioneer in both the literal and metaphorical sense. The reason he is of interest to the makers of the film is that Kenny Sailor is likely the inventor of the jump shot. If you want an inside look on how this literal game changer came about, you will get it. But Jump Shot turns into so much more than that. It feels like a it stumbled onto it's deeper meaning, because once they let Kenny Sailors talk he shared his enlightenment. Listening to him is like a warm embrace, he just radiates kindness. Even at the advanced age of ninety two he is genial and forthcoming, and not at all bitter about his lack of credit for inventing the jump shot. His life has been well spent, and that's the wonder of Jump Shot. Kenny Sailors seems to have found the secret to a happy life, and he has lived his with no regrets. The more we listen the greater sense of awe we have at this man, at the sheer amount of joy he has over his many years. He speaks of faith, of family, of honor, and from that we realize what matters. Jump Shot was not the movie I was expecting, and I'm grateful for it.

Great documentary about a very interesting life story...

Kenny Sailors has lived a life worthy of more than one documentary. My only problem with this film really, is that it's too short. There is much more I wanted to know. The story of this man inventing a famous basketball move, and going on to champion women's basketball in schools is a fascinating and inspiring one. On top of that, Sailors is a funny and charismatic interviewee and gives a lot of memorable quotes. The editing is good, the pacing well done, and there are cute animated sections!
