No No: A Dockumentary

The life and career of Dock Ellis is profiled in this touching, heartfelt, and inspiring sports documentary. Dock Ellis, pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates, became infamous for his outrageous behavior, from wearing curlers in his hair to his LSD-fueled no-hitter in 1970. He retired in 1979, then became a drug councilor. Featuring tearful interviews with former teammates and family members, vintage game footage, and a tremendous soundtrack curated by Beastie Boy Adam Horowitz with tracks by Curtis Mayfield, Hawkwind, and Detroit photo-punks Death,  No No: A Dockumentary is an enlightening portrait of a baseball legend.
