"It was gonna be the first line of his obituary"
6 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is a fascinating psychological portrait of a baseball player whose name may not be well-known. But Curt Flood has certainly left his mark.

Flood was convincing in his argument that being involuntarily traded was akin to being chattel in the days of slavery. But he was subjugated by addictive behaviors and resisted taking responsibility for his own role in his problems.

This documentary is superb in its quoting of experts, including Flood's second wife Judy Pace and "A Well-Paid Slave" author Brad Snyder. Interviewees are generally articulate in capturing the multifaceted aspects of this outfielder known for his athleticism as he leapt for flies.

"Watching him catch balls was like watching pretty girls go by," said an admiring teammate. "The next one was prettier than the last one."

This "Renaissance man before the Renaissance man was invented" was also a talented artist -- or was he? Intriguing questions are raised as to whether Flood was a con artist and fraud.

For the challenging, unvarnished portrait of an important person, this film is worth watching.
