Game 6 Reviews

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.

As a Sox fan and a writer, Game 6 spoke to me. Viewers without interest in baseball, DeLillo or criticism, may feel that the movie is just a short trip to nowhere.

This material could be pitched at various levels. You can imagine it being incorporated into a sequel to The Producers, or being transformed into quasi-O'Neill.

The film is meandering and highly uneven, but Robert Downey Jr. is truly oddball as a venomous drama critic, and watching that ball once again roll through Bill Buckner's legs is torture (for Red Sox fans anyway).

Watching it... may be as painful to viewers as watching a certain bobbled ball was to Red Sox fans 20 years ago.

It's one of the best films of the young year.

This tale about a successful playwright and a vitriolic theater critic begins on a strenuously schematic note ... and descends into a tangle of heavily symbolic nonsense.

An acutely observed study of a man haunted by the looming prospect of failure, Game 6 turns out to be a small-scale triumph.

If making movies like this for himself is the reason Downey makes movies like The Shaggy Dog for us -- well then, that's a bargain that benefits no one.

The movie includes a recurring motif of immigrant taxi drivers -- like them, the movie is constantly going around in circles.

An offbeat, not-quite-successful paranoid comedy.

To put it in words a Sox fan would understand, the movie hurts good.

As things drag on, you can ask yourself: which seems longer ago, the days when anyone cared about whether the Red Sox would ever win the series, or the days when a lone theater critic had the clout to terrify Broadway?

Screenwriter DeLillo and director Michael Hoffman have a near-perfect player in Michael Keaton.

Hoffman makes impressive use of his low budget, thanks to a talented cast, an atmospheric soundtrack by Yo La Tengo, and the general feeling of confidence that a veteran director can bring to a project.

A gratifying playground of high-wire language.

The film labors under the onerous weight of its symbolism.

Adeptly proves that you've gotta have heart.

Yup, it's one of those philosophical movies about the nature of life and why the Red Sox always lose.

Game 6 fails to make use of its clever dialogue and concepts as it attempts to become something more profound.
