What a great documentary. For anyone who likes boxing, this is a must-see. You hear Mike talking, almost non-stop, throughout giving numerous details about his personal life. The techniques used to present the film were terrific, though it does require you to pay attention; at several points, Toback runs multiple moving split-screens - it’s an interesting device as you are forced to “follow” the dialog as one screen box goes quiet as another picks up where it left off.
The fight footage is incredible. I felt like I was watching all this footage again for the first time.
Throughout, the viewer is given access to a side of Tyson I doubt any but his closest friends and associates have ever witnessed. At many points he chokes up, fighting back tears - it’s an amazing thing to watch.
