The Bleeder Reżyseria Philippe Falardeau
Boxing movies have been as much a part of the movie industry’s storytelling arsenal as the Western… There’s the cinematically rich sleaziness that surrounds the boxing world, bookies and gangsters, the temptations of easy money, drugs, floozies. We’ve seen it all before. “Chuck” does nothing new, and it moves through boxing tropes like it’s ticking off checkmarks, but there’s an honesty to it, a fresh and messy one.

Perhaps fittingly given its below-the-marquee protagonist, it’s a modest, affectionate piece of portraiture.. If the best boxing movies are the ones that make it feel like something is at stake outside the ring, Philippe Falardeau’s film makes the cut via its acute understanding of a certain strain of self-destructive alpha-male pathology. Its true cinematic sparring partner isn’t Rocky but Raging Bull.

The movie dutifully allows Schreiber to show off his skill as an actor while making us question the need for a narrative movie about Wepner, who is seen in the last shot amiably strolling along the beach with the real-life Linda. “Chuck” takes a small subject and turns it into a basic redemption story, and as such it has some merit. Not much, but just enough.
