Critic Reviews for The Spy Behind Home Plate
Reaching too hard for nostalgia, the distracting wall-to-wall soundtrack plays like a K-Tel collection of wartime hits. And for every talking head author, there's a copy of their book hogging the frame. A fascinating story nonetheless.
The film doesn't take an extra step towards cinematic showiness, nor does it glamorize or sensationalize Berg's life. It's just a nice time talking about World War II and baseball, sharing stories and retelling old jokes.
Seeing the story played out with reams of interviews and archival footage is so much better. It makes the unbelievable believable.
They don't make baseball players like Moe Berg anymore. Judging by Aviva Kempner's authoritative and engrossing documentary "The Spy Behind Home Plate," they likely never did.
Moe Berg's story is so good that you'll forgive "The Spy Behind Home Plate" for overtelling it.
