Description Hoop Dreams goes to the mat in WRESTLE, an intimate coming-of-age documentary about four members of a high-school wrestling team at Huntsville's J.O. Johnson High School, a longstanding entry on Alabama's list of failing schools. Coached by teacher Chris Scribner, teammates Jailen, Jamario, Teague, and Jaquan each face challenges far beyond a shot at the State Championship: splintered family lives, drug use, teenage pregnancy, mental health struggles, and run-ins with the law threaten to derail their success on the mat and lock any doors that could otherwise open. Tough-love coach Scribner isn't off the hook, either; he must come to terms with his own past conflicts while unwittingly wading into the complexities of race, class and privilege in the South. Director Suzannah Herbert and Co-Director Lauren Belfer captured over 650 hours of footage during the course of the team's final season to create this closely observed, deeply affecting depiction of growing up disadvantaged in America today.

This documentary covers the 1994 world heavyweight title fight between Lennox Lewis and Antonio Tarver, the final fight in a fourteen fight championship tournament between the two men. Lewis was too great for his opponent in the final bout, a brutal bout that turned out to be the most famous fight in boxing history. The documentary follows the aftermath of the fight, including interviews with the participants and their families. One of the greatest things about the film is the ability to compare the characters from the documentary to the actual participants in the fight. The documentary makes a point that Lewis's skill is so much greater than Tarver's that Lewis is more deserving of the title belt. Lewis did all the right things in the final fight, but his opponents were perfect, a perfect match. The documentary does a great job of showing how both men are able to walk away from the fight unscathed, but the film never makes that point. Lewis has been in a wheelchair for twenty years and still fights on, a fact that is never discussed by the documentary. Tarver was clearly in a different level of life at the time of the fight, and his family knew it. When they realized that his brother had died, the family had some of their relatives in the hospital, but they never talked about his brother. This may be because the family did not want to make their brother more famous than he was. The documentary does a good job at showing how this was not an easy fight to walk away from, especially in a wheelchair. Lewis fought to the bitter end, and still, when asked about the fight, he still has a smile on his face. He was a fighter, and a man of immense faith, and the documentary shows this to his face. However, it is not always easy to walk away from the fight. As the documentary states, you never know what it is like to walk away from something like this. Tarver may have lost his brother, but he never lost his faith, and he lives by it. The documentary is a good film, but I think it could have been much more thorough. There are a lot of other important moments in the film, like how Lewis met his wife, and his final meeting with his children. Unfortunately, the documentary leaves out the next fight, which was Lewis vs. Mickey Mantle, and the documentary shows the fight. In fact, there are a lot of scenes missing from the documentary that I think would have been great to show. For example, the documentary would have shown the brawl between Lewis and his opponent and Lewis's reaction. The documentary would have shown the movie clips and the tapes that would have show the fight. I think the documentary would have been much better if it had been more thorough.
