Pitching a no-hitter game in Major League Baseball is a feat that happens rarely enough that it can be the pinnacle achievement in a player’s career. Pitching phenomenon Dock Ellis is one such player whose career is defined by the no-hitter he threw for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1970s, although it is remembered much more for the “oh no he didn’t” additional fact that he accomplished it while out of his mind on LSD. The self-styled “Muhammad Ali of baseball”, Ellis was an outspoken and in-your-face force to be reckoned with, whether advocating the advancement of black players in a league that had only ‘accepted’ players of color a generation previously, or whether throwing balls at players— not to them—with an aim to hurt. Director Jeff Radice firmly grounds Ellis as a man very much of his time, from growing up in post-war Los Angeles, through his heyday that coincided with the ‘60s and ‘70s Black Power movement, to his post-retirement and post-sobriety work as a drug abuse counsellor. Beastie Boy Adam Horowitz provides the funk-infused score to what Nathan Rabin of The Dissolve says is “a compelling, deeply moving, fun look at the highs and lows of a bygone era.”
