NO NO: A DOCUMENTARY (2014)

Flavorwire

No No: A Dockumentary justifies its existence (and price of admission) within its opening moments, providing actual footage of professional baseball player Dock Ellis of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitching an erratic no-hitter against the San Diego Padres on June 12, 1970. It is the central incident of the film (out now in theaters and VOD) and one of the great modern folktales: the guy who threw a no-hitter on LSD.
