Eating Crow Dept. – Why It’s A Bad Idea To Trash An Unmade (Mets) Film

Posted in Baseball, Cinema at 2:03 am by

Some two years ago, I lambasted the makers of the Mets documentary “Mathematically Alive” (“the bond between you and your favorite club is no more precious, close or unique than that of any other drooling, obsessed baseball fan”), mocking their unfinished efforts with typical prejudice (œ’the love affair between the Mets and their fans’” is a little like the love affair between John Hinckley Jr. and Jodie Foster”).

I’m pleased to report, however,  that if the above clip is anything to go by, “Mathematically Alive” might not be nearly the flaming pile of puke I’d predicted. If you must see one motion picture in 2008 that features adults cursing at Kenny Rogers, let this be the one.

That said, if Joseph Coburn and Katherine Foronjy are intent on including graphic footage of Joe Beningo-Gazingo’s face, I foresee an NC-17 rating in the offing.

    Glad to see you’re coming around. As our buddy steve keane would say, the fans’ take on the mets is not all, “seashells and balloons.”
