Route 666

Four men, one woman; she’s blonde, while the guys sport variations of an unkempt jet-black mop.

Steve James has an uncanny ability to defy the observer effect–a force that dictates that mere observation will change the natural course of things. In his films, the director of the documentaries “Hoop Dreams” and “The Interrupters” has been able to recede into the background and let events transpire as if a gaping camera lens were invisible.
