Released:

Rating:
R

Game 6 is a 2005 film that shows how one man's self-doubt and paranoia leads him to self-destruct. In the film, Nicky Rogan (Michael Keaton) is a successful playwright whose latest play is about to have its opening night. After reading a bad review of another person's play in the local newspaper, written by drama critic, Steven Schwimmer (Robert Downey, Jr.), Nicky is nervous about the type of review he will receive for his play. He continues to torture himself by thinking of all the bad things the critic will say and ends up convincing himself that the best thing to do is to kill Steven before he can write anything. Instead of going to the opening night of his play, he spends the evening at a local sports bar watching game 6 of the World Series. The Boston Red Sox are playing the New York Mets, and Nicky is cheering for the Red Sox, but he is sure that they will lose. As the Red Sox pull ahead, he seems to be able to forget his troubles, until a series of errors cause the Red Sox to lose the game. He becomes distraught and heads out the door of the bar to follow through with his plan.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Carina Chocano

    Small and intimate, Game 6 is a meditation on American theater and the Great American Pastime that hovers above the surface of reality but never quite takes off, either.

    The New York Times

    A tale of one man's meltdown that ought to have an expiration date of Oct. 27, 2004, stamped on every frame.

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Game 6, the first screenplay by one of America's great living novelists, Don DeLillo, is poorly served by Michael Hoffman's flat, soporific direction.
