James Toback Statele Unite, 2008

Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Tyson

Engrossing and candid documentary exploring the tumultuous life and very complicated personality of the boxing legend. Some of director James Toback's stylistic flourishes are a bit over the top, but it is at its strongest when focusing on Tyson's honest, revealing interviews. Even if your not interested in boxing, this is a fascinating character study.
