For fans of DeLillo, Keaton and/or either team in that classic Series, this curious little picture is worth tracking down.

Filled with heavy dialogue, Game 6 is a film that feels more appropriate for the stage. That said, it takes on challenging themes and deep thoughts.

For better and worse, this is a fiction writer's movie: the dialogue is admirably precise, yet the restrictive worldview that's so gripping in DeLillo's books seems like mere solipsism on-screen.

The big problem here is one of credibility, on a number of fronts.

Um retrato pretensioso de Nova York como centro dramático do mundo que acaba se salvando em função dos bons diálogos e das ótimas performances de Keaton e Downey Jr.
| Original Score: 3/5

Game 6 is ultimately a curious dud, although it makes us anxiously await DeLillo's next time at bat.

If you're looking for a film about smart, confused people who make mistakes (like Buckner) and try to learn from them, this could be it.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

... a quirky little comedy ...

Game 6 is enthralled with the sound of its words, even as it loves the deliberate, sensual pace of a well-played (or well-lost) ball game.

The Red Sox as fatalistic metaphor is almost a quaint notion now, but Game 6 brings it all back to vivid life.

The thudding, obvious symbolism is the film's biggest concern and its primary problem.

DeLillo and company have let one go through their legs.

Keaton embraces his role with a relish he hasn't shown in more than a decade, winding his character into new corners of desperation with each scene.

A shaky director, a deadly critic and a losing ball club collide in an entertaining surreal showdown just off Broadway.
| Original Score: 7/10

A meditation on American theater and the Great American Pastime that hovers above the surface of reality but never quite takes off, either.

Keaton is terrific, as is the entire cast; the result is a lean, polished little gem.

Clangs with the ripely overwritten dialogue of award-winning novelist Don DeLillo. And that dialogue, coupled with a go-nowhere script, is this wannabe-likeable indie drama's undoing.

No writer could ever top the high drama witnessed in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series - which may be the point of this sloppy but endearing mash note to baseball, art and fate.
