Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Babe Ruth (1998)

Directed by George Roy

Starring Liev Schreiber, Babe Ruth, Jean Shepherd


Prob the best of the Ruth documentaries, with the deepest exploration of his character and personality. Schreiber’s voice is just so silky.

We dive right into his career, skipping over his his early life, then jump around a bit, from his “called shot” to his start in Boston and then his run with the Yankees. Would have preferred something a bit more chronological.
