I Hate Christian Laettner (2015)
Early in this documentary, a journalist describes former Duke star Christian Laettner as "one of the top 10 greatest players who ever played college basketball, and the number one asshole of all time." Indeed, Laettner was the player everyone loved to hate in the early 1990s: a cocky, elbow-throwing big man with good looks, serious game, and no shortage of swagger. The film, narrated by Rob Lowe, looks at why Laettner was such a villain, exploring issues of race, privilege, and athletic dominance.
