Even if you didn't follow the story then, Wranovics tells it so wryly your interest never flags -- and there's more suspense for newcomers, since the mystery and court verdict remain in doubt until the end.
Up For Grabs, a buoyant documentary by Michael Wranovics, touches three bases of contemporary life: greed, litigiousness and a fixation with fame, however fleeting, that rises to the level of dementia.
It's a terrific story -- part mystery, part farce, part legal nail-biter -- with a last-minute reversal so bitterly ironic it could have been scripted by Billy Wilder.
In the annals of baseball history, their battle will remain a curious little footnote, but sometimes footnotes are more compelling than the main text.
This smartly assembled comedy articulates irritation with and bewilderment at its subject: the legal battle for possession of a baseball.
It would be hard to find a more succinct and entertaining indictment of American popular culture and obsessive sports fans.
Michael Wranovics' well-meant documentary about the absurd legal battle over the ownership of the baseball Barry Bonds hit for his season-record 73rd home run, back in 2001, is instantly overshadowed by subsequent events.
Up for Grabs isn't just about a ball. It's about America.
Their greed provides an excellent opportunity to examine the law and a bizarre media circus.
A crackerjack documentary.
This well-made documentary takes a seemingly small subject and uses it to illuminate the widening tears in the fabric of American society.
And Justice for Ball
