  1. Captures the excitement of the game as well as the intimate drama -- and comedy -- of the human conflict.
  2. 80
    A winning combination of humor and crafty filmmaking.
  3. Reviewed by: Joe Leydon
    80
    A sly curve ball of a documentary best described as a sports-themed "Rashomon" with an O. Henry twist.
  4. 75
    A rarity for documentaries. The movie is a full-tilt farce, and were it not completely true, it'd be a piercing satire that Preston Sturges might have polished into a resonant screwball.
  5. I say the movie is infuriatingly unfair to Hayashi; others will cry foul for Popov. See it with an umpire.
  6. 70
    Wranovics's entertaining documentary feels appropriately detached.
  7. 50
    As another exposé of stubbornness, petty opportunism, and greed, there's some residual value in the story of two unappealing characters.
