I’ve seen most of them on Netflix (as linked), and the overall quality varies from excellent to pointless [see No Mas (2013) for an example of the latter]. Top films include:
Of Miracles and Men (2015) Puts Miracle (2004) to shame; the Sofia Loren analogy by the Soviet/Russian journalist is perfect in precision.
The Two Escobars (2010) Searing documentary of the Columbian national futbol team, and it’s elegant defenseman Andres Escobar; trying to compete at the 1994 World Cup during the US-sponsored Plan Columbia operation– a military & CIA war for control of the Medellin drug cartel led by Pablo Escobar.
Pony Excess (2010) Before the U, there was SMU; Eric Dickerson is the prototype too-cool-for-school athlete in this wild west football saga.
The U (2010) Most productive football factory ever; Billy Corben = excellent filmmaker.
Small Potatoes: Who Killed the USFL? (2009) Answer: Donald Trump. Updated 7/11/15: Trump is now seeking the Republican nomination for president of the United States.
Slaying the Badger (2014) The story of Europeans v. lone American Greg LeMond (& his wife), at le tour de France, before widespread doping in professional cycling.
Jordan Rides the Bus (2010) Mighta been a big-leaguer…the MLB strike of 1994 was crucial…as Annie Savoy said in Bull Durham (1988)– “timing is everything.”
You Don’t Know Bo (2012) Best athlete ever.
9.79* (2012) As it turns out, Carl Lewis wasn’t any cleaner.
Catching Hell (2011) No fan deserves to be put in Steve Bartman’s situation.
Broke (2012) Roughly 80% of professional athletes, five years after retiring: Billy Corben directs.
Big Shot (2014) Venture capitalist bluffs everybody, and almost pulls it off; happens everyday on Wall Street (and around the world), in every industry. Updated 7/11/15: this guy just went to prison again, for embezzlement.
Rand University (2014) The greatest NFL wide receiver of all-time was Jerry Rice; Randy Moss is second on that list.
Free Spirits (2014) The ABA was a crazy league, and the NBA is still paying for it. Updated 7/11/15: the NBA finally settled with the former owners of the St. Louis Spirits.
The Real Rocky (2011) Sly Stallone was eventually sued, and settled out-of-court for an undisclosed amount with Chuck Wepner; whose story is more fascinating than any Rocky movie.
Playing for the Mob (2014) Goodfellas (1990) is more fascinating in real-life too, Ray Liotta narrates.
Brian & the Boz (2014) He finally grew up, throwing off his BS persona; similar to The Marinovich Project (ESPN 2011), which was also well done– maybe even better.
The Dotted Line (2011) Morgan Spurlock examines professional sports agency; been a fan since Super Size Me (2004).
Brothers in Exile (2014) Livan & Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez, from Cuba to MLB; once again, more gripping & compelling than any Hollywood dramatized production of these stories.
Tim Richmond: To the Limit (2010) Amazing driver, died of AIDS in 1989.
Requiem for the Big East (2014) After Bird & Magic, college hoops thrived and the Big East was its beast; today it realigns annually.
Benji (2012) What tragically happened to a Chicago high school phenom in 1984, has gotten worse everywhere.
