The road to hell is paved with good intentions, they say – and the path of good intentions, we'd wager, is liberally bricked with dull, earnest important-man biopics. An adaptation of Nicholas Dawidoff's 1994 book of the same name, The Catcher Was a Spy rewinds back to the mid-1930s, when baseball player Moses “Moe” Berg (Paul Rudd) was on the Boston Red Sox roster and keeping Fenway

Is there some sort of stealth Remember-the-Nineties indie-film revival going on? A few weeks ago, we got Hotel Artemis, a microwaved slab of postmodern pulp fiction that channeled the moment when Tarantino-lite was a mini-genre.
