Tyson Documentary

Tyson DocumentaryHave you heard about the new Tyson Documentary? What is it all about? When will it be shown in theaters? Where can you get more information about it?

If you were already alive during the 80's, it's hard to miss Mike Tyson. He became famous for being the youngest boxer to win the IBF, WBA and WBC world heavyweight titles. He became the scary "baddest man on the planet" who had a reputation to knock his opponents out in the first round (See The 11 Most Painfully-Awesome Mike Tyson “Punch-outs). I also recall his character was the biggest "boss" in the Nintendo video game "Punch Out" which I played when I was a kid.

He was always in the news, as his life was marred with controversy both inside the boxing ring and out. He was allegedly a violent husband. He was convicted and sentenced to jail for rape. After that, he went all berserk on Holyfield and bit his ears during a championship boxing match. He went from hero to zero as quickly as his first round knockout matches.

Going back to the Tyson Documentary,
It is about the life of Mike Tyson starting from his childhood to his glory days in boxing, to his eventual undoing, to what he is right now. Most of the views shared in the movie were from Mike Tyson himself.

Rottentomatoes.com calls it a "fascinating, emotional, and frank confessional from Iron Mike that sheds a sympathetic light on one of boxing's most controversial icons." I also heard it garnered standing ovations during the Cannes Film Festival screening. I would like to watch it one of these days. It's not as easy to get a copy of the Tyson Documentary here in the Philippines though.
