My pick of the week

"Untold: Johnny Football," available now on Netflix

What's happening: This installment of Netflix's sports documentary series covers Johnny Manziel, aka "Johnny Football," the superstar and Heisman trophy winner at Texas A&M who became an NFL flameout after just two seasons.

  • Quick takes: Director and executive producer Ryan Duffy doesn't seem interested in making his subject a sympathetic figure. This doc is brutally honest about how Manziel's destructive habits derailed his career and personal life.

What they're saying: "Johnny gave one of the most raw, vulnerable, revealing, open-hearted interviews that we've ever had," Maclain Way, an executive producer of "Untold," said in a statement.
