Talking Ball with Jeffrey Radice – The Hardball Times

Few people ever have been more complicated—or controversial—than the late Dock Ellis. One moment, he could have been complaining publicly about something as trivial as the length of his hotel bed in San Francisco; the next, he might be visiting hardened criminals in the state penitentiary, doing his best to advise them on a straighter and narrower path.
It’s only natural that someone like Ellis would become the subject of a full-length documentary. Directed by Jeffrey Radice, No No: A Dockumentary explores the life and times of Dock Ellis in rich detail. Extremely well-edited and bolstered by a phenomenal 1970s soundtrack, the film features previously unseen home video interspersed with numerous contemporary interviews.
