Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: "Head Games" gains credibility and power from compassion for athletes and respect for their accomplishments. But it also tries to open the eyes of sports lovers to dangers that have too often been minimized and too seldom fully understood.

- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Thursday, September 20, 2012

Fresh: Finally, there's a sports movie for people who are caught between admiration and fear of athleticism.

- Adam Litovitz, Globe and Mail, Friday, September 21, 2012

Rotten: James has a worthy message, but never makes the case that he needs an entire documentary to deliver it.

- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Thursday, September 20, 2012
