Don D. hits the big screen

The first film to be based on a Don Delillo script just played at Sundance. Called Game 6, it's about a Red Sox fan played by Michael Keaton who's caught in a traffic jam. I haven't read anything by DeLillo since his magnum opus Underworld (I couldn't even make it through the book on tape of The Body Artist read by Laurie Anderson, and I read so many bad reviews of his last book Cosmopolis--some by long time aficionados-- that I never even gave it a shot). I don't know how his hyper aware style will translate to film but I'd like to check it out if and when it ever makes it out here in the hinterlands.
