Critic Reviews for Ball of Wax

All Critics (3)

In Daniel Kraus' dark baseball film Ball of Wax, life on the diamond is clearly no longer a sport. It's something sinister, like a virus refusing to let go of its host.

Daniel Kraus and his talented cast and crew knock this one out of the park. Ball of Wax is an All-Star of an independent film.
