Netflix is a lot like diamond mining. You have to sift through tons of worthless dirt to get to the good stuff. Every now and then you can uncover a gem.
Last night Mrs SDUF discovered "Eight Men Out" the story of the 1919 Black Sox scandal. This is a terrific baseball movie not to be missed, or viewed again if it has been a while. It's a quality effort from 1988 by John Sayles starring John Cusack, John Maloney (the dad in Frasier), David Strathairn (Seward in Lincoln), Christopher Lloyd, and Charlie Sheen.
If you've never seen the film, give it a look. If nothing else you'll find the real reason the players fell for an attempted fix of the world series.
The film's Rotten Tomatoes rating is 86% by critics and 76% by users.
