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.

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

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.

A very nice and simple film, with clear messages and sparklingly witty dialogue.

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.

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).

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

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

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