With five outs remaining in Game 6 of the 2003 National League Championship Series, Florida Marlins second baseman Luis Castillo hit a foul ball straight for Chicago Cubs left fielder Moises Alou. But the crucial catch was not to be. Instead, a flurry of hands reached out from the stands, deflecting the ball into the crowd, and instantly one man's name became synonymous with blowing it in a critical, high-stakes moment: Steve Bartman. In reality dozens of errors contributed to the Cubs' loss in 2003. Why? With Catching Hell, Academy Award®-winning documentarian and Tribeca alum Alex Gibney probes this topic of sports curses and scapegoats with his signature incisiveness, tracing the roots of our compulsion to focus misplaced blame for an entire team's legacy on small moments of tangible ineptitude. In the process, Gibney's comprehensive interrogation of this under-examined sports phenomenon lends insight and a bit of heroic tragedy to Bartman's own curse of undeserved notoriety.
