Game 6 Reviews

March 18, 2013
For fans of DeLillo, Keaton and/or either team in that classic Series, this curious little picture is worth tracking down.
March 21, 2011
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.

... a quirky little comedy ...

Novelist Don DeLillo brings many of his strengths to the screenplay for Game 6.

The Red Sox as fatalistic metaphor is almost a quaint notion now, but Game 6 brings it all back to vivid life.
April 7, 2006
DeLillo and company have let one go through their legs.
April 1, 2006
A meditation on American theater and the Great American Pastime that hovers above the surface of reality but never quite takes off, either.

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.

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.
March 10, 2006
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.
February 4, 2006
A kind of comic variation on the Stations of the Cross transferred to the ordeals of a Gotham playwright, pic feels indifferent and empty.
