Netflix’s Last Dance documentary was gripping. But the soaring on-court Air Jordan that we loved so much, is distinctly different in retrospect. Or, at least, the idea of Jordan, a high-flying hero with a great smile and superhuman talent, isn’t quite the same thing as his day-to-day persona in the trenches for the Chicago Bulls. For me, the film spotlights this notable gap, the difference between the Jordan image in popular culture and the intense in-game Jordan that we didn’t always see on film … beyond the jukes and jams. This is perhaps what makes the film work so well, despite it being rather jarring.
