MovieStyle: Back in the game

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published April 10, 2014 at 10:53 a.m.

While Kevin Costner’s career has had its ups and downs, you’d be hard-pressed to think of an actor who has has more success with movies set in the world of sports. He was in two of the best baseball movies of all time, Bull Durham and Field of Dreams (there are even those who’d suggest For Love of the Game is underrated), and played a journey golf pro in Tin Cup. And then there’s American Flyers, a little gem from 1985 in which he starred as a bicycling sports physician. So it might be fair to wonder why it took him so long to make a football movie like Draft Day, which opens this week.

Our Karen Martin has the review and a piece on the making of the film in this week’s MovieStyle.

Also opening this busy week, is Errol Morris’ latest interrogatory documentary The Unknown Known, in which he attempts to map the mind of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Dan Lybarger reports on the movie while Philip Martin’s review of the film can be found on the blood, dirt & angels website (blooddirtangels.com). Martin also reviews The Raid 2 in the newspaper, while Lybarger’s critique of the animated Rio 2 is on the website.
