Bull Durham
Bull Durham (1988)

Some filmmakers fall prey to the Orson Welles curse, under which the film for which you will be remembered most (or, in many cases, the only film for which you will be remembered) is your first shot out of the box. However, this matters less if your first swing (to keep the baseball metaphors going) knocks the ball out of the park. Writer-director Ron Shelton's BULL DURHAM touches all the bases as a terrific romantic comedy and maybe the best baseball movie ever. A great cast and screenplay bring this story of minor leaguers hanging on to their dreams to life.

Payne has the rare talent for capturing human relationships that 99% of filmmakers can only wish for. Sorry, nothing blows up, and no CGI either. Just another intelligent film for grown-ups from Payne.

Amazing that I have never seen this film b4 now . . . esp considering I have owned its great s/t album by former Animals keyboardist Alan Price since 1973. An under-appreciated film . . . more assured and more fully realized than Anderson's landmark IF . . . . I'll have to see BRITTANIA HOSPITAL, Anderson's third collaboration with Malcolm McDowell.

There's a thin line between "clever" and "incomprehensible."
