“Breakdown” vs. “Hardball”: Direct vs. Meandering

The Kurt Russell movie, “Breakdown,” knows what it’s about: this is the story of one man doing everything he can to rescue his wife after she is kidnapped. That’s it. The Keanu Reeves movie, “Hardball,” doesn’t know what it’s about: there’s a gambler who gets out of gambling by gambling and a baseball team that doesn’t need any help or training as long as a coach appears and problems with a unsafe neighborhood and a love story that exists only in fits and spurts and… well, you get the point.

On this week’s podcast we look at both movies, discuss where they go right and where they don’t. You know the drill.
