'Game 6' is a yet another reminder of how GREAT Michael Keaton is as an actor. Delivering his best performance after Birdman & Clean and Sober, Keaton pitches in an unforgettable turn, thus proving to be at his finest!
'Game 6' Synopsis: Combining real and fictional events, Game 6 centers around the historic 1986 World Series and a day in the life of a playwright who skips opening night to watch the momentous game.
'Game 6', as a film, also is attention-grabbing. It has an interesting storyline, that has been translated into a fine film. It nicely blends its script, with the 1986 World Series as its wallpaper. Don DeLillo's Screenplay is a mix of drama & madness, but it makes good use of both the sides. I was intrigued by its characters, particularly the protagonist, portrayed by Keaton. Michael Hoffman's Direction is very good. Cinematography is accurate. Editing is razor-sharp, culminating the film within 84-minutes.
Performance-Wise: Its Keaton all the way. Its a performance, purely dominated by sheer talent & commitment. Robert Downey Jr. is effective in his bit. Catherine O'Hara is impressive, as always. The Late/Great Roger Rees lends support.
On the whole, 'Game 6' is a well-made film, with a strong performance by Keaton. Heavily Recommended!
