Nice documentary
14 April 2012 | by (Staten Island, NY) – See all my reviews

I grew up a Yankee fan and was glad when Luis joined the team in 1979. I always mimicked Tiant's windup when we played whiffleball.

While this was moving in some parts, one thing was unintentionally amusing: When he returned to his dilapidated neighborhood, he said that "everything has changed." I found that fascinating since people were still driving around in 1950's American cars. For all the Hollywood "stars" who gush about how wonderful socialism is--this film shows just how much socialism/communism sucks. The neighborhood hadn't changed because there is no progress in socialist societies as compared to capitalist societies. I'm sure that the high members of the communist party were living large while the proletariat were living in poverty. As Rush Limbaugh said the other day, "Capitalists get power by becoming wealthy; socialists use power to get wealthy." Totally spot on.
