Eight Men Out (John Sayles, 1988, 119 mins)
Based on the true story of the 1919 "Black Sox" scandal, Sayles's indie drama shows the best team in baseball playing dirty when low-balled by the boss and bribed by gangsters. Called "essential moviegoing" by Peter Travers, Eight Men Out's all-star ensemble includes John Cusack, John Mahoney, Clifton James, Charlie Sheen, David Strathairn, and Christopher Lee. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
