What does baseball have to do with liking this score or not? So, if you like baseball, you'll pull your hair out because of this score? Baseball fans avoid it? What is this? This is arguably one of Clemmensen's least thought-out reviews. This is ludicrous.
"Then again, what do you expect from a British director and a German composer attempting to set a film in the context of America's pastime?"
Oh, what a cheap shot. Clemmensen, you're above this. Anyway, just so you know, there's a director called Milos Forman. A Czechoslovakian whose films include Hair, The People vs. Larry Flint, Ragtime, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Clearly, he understands American culture and has made and some of his characters are icons of an era. Oh, did I mention he comes from a former communist country?
