Well crafted sports film indeed about money, focussing more on sit downs, negotiations and poker faces. Underdog team uses numbers to augur success rather than status quo selection methods. Soundtrack good, solid acting. Definitely one of Pitt's best performances as an obsessive compulsive. The film also seems to be saying goodbye to the pop-icon 'Brad Pitt' we know before he enters old age. The long shots show him as the Pitt we know. The close ups show that he is mortal and seasoned, with a Redford atmosphere and a tired face. The side views when he is driving feature him wearing oversized sunglasses that emphasize the Michael J Fox nose. Why oh why? Hill and Hoffman fill their roles perfectly.
