Eight Men Out (1988): A dramatization of the Black Sox scandal when the underpaid Chicago White Sox accepted bribes to deliberately lose the 1919 World Series.
Directed by John Sayles.
being not a particularly big movie person,i thought this was a fine film. i think its “problem” is, that it is not a sentimental sport fan type of film; and, because its theme is sports related,that itself will dampen the interest of the non-sports fan. it’s sort of caught between worlds.
