Inside Baseball: A DVD Review of Sugar

"Melancholic and pragmatic, Sugar is not a rousing Saturday night sports movie. But it is a brilliantly executed film that provides insight into a world most viewers rarely think about. As far as sobering sports movies go, Sugar would make a strong double-feature with last year’s The Wrestler, as both films are dedicated to examining the psychology of minor league athletes just outside the spotlight."

I actually think I saw Sugar and The Wrestler back-to-back at the Hamptons Film Fest last year. Loved the both very much (I actually think I prefer Sugar, particularly for its second half, which went in directions I never thought it would).
