‘The New Yorker’ Lists ‘Pinball’ Among Best Movies

December 1, 2023

The MPI Original feature film Pinball: The Man Who Saved the Game is listed among the “Best Movies of 2023” by The New Yorker magazine.

Critic Richard Brody hails the film’s “daring narrative framework” which presents a “bittersweet, vibrantly scrappy re-creation of the times,” ranking the film #10 on his list of best films. Read the full piece here.

Written and directed by longtime MPI filmmakers The Bragg Brothers (Austin and Meredith Bragg), Pinball is based on the true story of Roger Sharpe, the GQ journalist and real-life pinball wizard, who in 1976 helped overturn New York City’s 35-year ban on pinball. The film’s all-star cast is led by Mike Faist (Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story), Crystal Reed (Swamp Thing, Teen Wolf), and Dennis Boutsikaris (Better Call Saul, The Bourne Legacy).
