The Reviews for Knuckleball! (2012) 720p

Weirdly ProfoundReviewed byJonathan CVote: 7/10

Knuckleball! is a sports documentary that follows the lives of Tim Wakefield and RA Dickey, two knuckleball pitchers, during the 2011 baseball season. More than this, however, it is a story about the strange life of being a knuckleball pitcher, and goes into some depth, about the history and interesting personalities of knuckleballers over the years.

Knuckleball! is a movie that seems like it should be boring, but it is actually a wonderful human story of following a dream and finding improbable success. Knuckleballers, as the movie explains, are people borne of desperation--they see the end of their careers before them and conclude that, rather than quitting, they have to do something. They find their solution through a practice that at once gains them acceptance but also turns them into something of an outcast. We root for them because we appreciate people who can carve an unconventional path, and in watching them we feel like maybe we imperfect people have a chance also to make it in this world.

As a result, this movie is weirdly profound. For all of you who find the alternate path, this movie is for you. Watch it and cheer on the everyman, as he floats it up to the plate at 60 miles per hour and watches the world's most intimidating sluggers go up in smoke.

Was lucky enough to catch this at the world premier free screening atthe Tribeca Film Festival last Saturday.

Really enjoyed its interesting and heart warming story telling aboutthe rare baseball bread of the knuckleball pitcher. Both looking backand looking forward the film brought the story of this select band ofpitchers beautifully to the screen.

R.A Dickey... such a class guy and there is something quite touchingthat he is the only knuckleballer left in the MLB. And you couldn'twish for a better champion of the 'freak' pitch.

Would happily watch it again. Congrats to all those involved.

Knuckleball tells the story of baseball pitchers Tim Wakefield of theRed Sox and R.A. Dickey of the Mets as they go through the travails ofthe 2011 Major League Baseball season. In the process, viewers gaininsight into the mechanics, the lore, and the history of the fluxiestof baseball pitches.

Wakefield in particular comes across as a likable straight-shooter whodeveloped this pitch to salvage his hopes of making it to and stayingin the Bigs. Dickey follows in the footsteps of Wake, and seems poisedto carry the torch for knucklers into the 21st century. With greatinterviews and insights from Charlie Hough, Phil Niekro, and JimBouton, we learn that knuckleball pitchers are a small, proudfraternity who pass their wisdom down the line to keep the art of theknuckleball alive in an age of flamethrowers and the need for speed.

The art and chaos of the pitch itself lends itself well to the bigscreen, and for baseball fans and for anyone who loves to root for theunderdog, Knuckleball definitely delivers.
