Michael Keaton is a successful playwright staring down the double-barreled shotgun of two momentous events: his autobiographical play opens on Broadway the same night his beloved Red Sox defend their tenuous lead against the Mets in the 1986 World Series. The fine cast includes Catherine O'Hara, Griffin Dunne, Bebe Neuwirth, and Robert Downey Jr., though the real star is novelist Don DeLillo, whose idiosyncratic script includes such surreal touches as a snowstorm of falling asbestos. For better and worse, this is a fiction writer's movie: the dialogue is admirably precise, yet the restrictive worldview that's so gripping in DeLillo's books seems like mere solipsism on-screen. Michael Hoffman directed. R, 87 min.
