    The Catcher Was a Spy

    ★★★

    Moe Berg was an accomplished baseball vet when WWII broke out, and he found himself practicing what AMC told us is an even older American past time. If you think that the pun on "The Catcher in the Rye" is on-the-nose, this title actually makes sense. Well, depending on Berg's preferences in the bedroom, there may be another meaning to the word "catcher". Who better to sneak into the ranks of German Nazis than an "allegedly" gay Jew? If the…

It's hard to not…

    City of Hope

    ★★★½

    I don't know how far John Sayles and Vincent Spano have come from "Baby It's You", but with this title, the New Jersey setting and the post-'60s timeline, this is when they can't afford a Bruce Springsteen song. I'm almost certain that they purchased the rights to the gent's entire catalogue just to be able to use with said title and the premise. Perhaps making up a New Jersey city instead of setting this in Manchester, Kentucky, is how Sayles…
