Great new Baseball movies in 2018 & 2017 (Netflix & Cinema List)

The Vore's Film staff selects the top best baseball movies of 2018 in cinema, DVD and Netflix. Are Richard Linklater, Michael Goldfine & David Boyd our new baseball genre directors? The main focus is on international art house & American and British indie cinema.

The first great baseball movies that come to mind are those old flicks from the 80’s with Kevin Costner. When cinema was still un-ironic, and about telling uplifting tales to entertain and to celebrate the love for a certain topic. The baseball movie is anything but dead however. They are not always simply about the game, but very often about the spirit and communities surrounding the all-American sport. Or they become very modern, almost as a symbol of how times have changed, like in Moneyball, where the numbers are more important than the romance.

It does not get more American that baseball. Get a little taste of it here. Richard Linklater genuinely portrayed American life with 'Boyhood'. He is now going after the All-American baseball story.
