Moneyball [2011]

 

Watched Moneyball a few weeks ago- had always wanted to get into it because of the statistics/disruption angle, but hesitated because I don’t know shit about baseball. Took the leap after discovering that it was Sorkin’s dialogue.

I especially enjoyed the portrayal of the media and how it’s quick to jump to conclusions (ie “wet roads cause rain”) and how the protagonist dealt with all the frustrations of knowing you’re right when the world thinks you’re wrong, and when even that’s not good enough. Recommend.
