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.

I have seen all of the previous Bischoff films, and even though they are all great, and there are some very good ones, they all lack the central tenet of wrestling. There is no relationship between the wrestlers and the audience, and the film never feels like a wrestling film. It is very important that this film is understood as a documentary, but it feels like a documentary film that is being made to look like a wrestling film. In addition, some of the transitions between matches and scenes are also very odd. It is an interesting concept, and I would recommend seeing it, but I think that the director did a poor job of it. There is one scene where Nick, a wrestler, is drinking beer and having fun, and he is the center of attention in the shot, but there is no real focus on him. And when he starts talking about how much he hates the film, and he thinks that it is ruining his life, it is very strange. I also would recommend watching the Wrestler's Union commercial before the film. It is pretty funny. Overall, I would recommend this film to people who are wrestling fans, but it is not for everyone.

I am a fan of professional wrestling. So when I first heard that this documentary was going to be made I had to watch it. I can't say that I really cared for the two main stars in the documentary but I can tell you that I absolutely loved the first half. I love watching wrestling, and I love watching documentaries. This documentary did an excellent job of bringing both sides of the story to light and showing us why the sport is so popular and why it is so violent. I do not think that a lot of people know the true story of how the sport of wrestling began. I do know that it is based on a true story but it is not the truth. It was not true that Gene Okerlund had a connection to the WWF. That is a misconception that is prevalent in most documentaries and there is absolutely no connection. Gene Okerlund did not work for the WWF. He worked for WCW in Canada and he did some WWF work. He was a wrestler in his own right but not the WWF. He was the promoter of the WWF for a few years. The WWF was created by the McMahons, who owned a wrestling promotion called the WWF. The McMahons were known as the dark wrestlers of the business. They were known for having long hair and wearing black. Vince McMahon was not the WWF president and the WWF was not a corporation but a collection of individual wrestlers. The McMahons owned the WWF and the McMahons' personal life was centered around Vince McMahon. The McMahons were very wealthy and were able to travel to a number of countries for the WWF. This was their business and they were very comfortable with it. They did not want to be involved with the WWF because they felt that Vince McMahon was making too much money and had too much power. The WWF was the only thing that allowed them to travel and it was something that they loved doing. When the McMahons left the WWF, the WWF was in a very bad situation. They had to scramble to find new wrestlers and the WWF did not know what to do with them. Vince McMahon decided to have them perform in various movies in order to make money. The WWF had become an industry and the McMahons had lost all of their financial means. They had to be willing to do things that were not in their personal best interest. One of the movies that Vince McMahon had them perform in was titled "The Big Show", which was supposed to be a big hit and would give the McMahons a nice break. But it was a huge flop and they had to turn to something else to make money. One of the biggest mistakes that Vince McMahon made was that he did not hire the best wrestlers to perform in the movie and they ended up doing terrible movies like "The Ultimate Warrior" and "The Rock." They didn't know what to do and the McMahons did not know what to do. They started making these movies that were not meant for the general audience and Vince McMahon saw this and he was furious.

I was very happy that this documentary has been so highly regarded. I read in one of the other comments that it was not very interesting and if you are looking for a compelling and action packed documentary, I strongly suggest you watch this. But for those who are looking for a documentary that will give you a realistic and honest picture of the wrestling business, I suggest you look elsewhere. I found the entire thing rather depressing. I am not sure what is going on in wrestling these days, but I do know that I have a rather unique view of it, and that I can't help but to be impressed by it. I know that I am not alone in this view. Many others do too, and that is why this is a great documentary. I think this is a very important film, and I look forward to seeing it again.

I have never seen a wrestling movie before and I had no idea that this would be as good as it was. I knew that I would hate it, but I also knew that I would love it. It was a great movie, and it is by far the best wrestling movie I have ever seen. I cannot believe that this is the first wrestling movie that I have ever seen. The way they portrayed the wrestlers, the way they acted, the way the cameraman shot the movie, the way the music was used.it was all perfect. The best thing about this movie is the ending. They don't ever make a wrestling movie with a happy ending. This movie is not about wrestling or any other sport for that matter. This movie was about people. It is about the meaning of life. It is about how important it is to be yourself and have a purpose. This movie is a perfect 10. I would recommend this movie to anyone. It is a perfect 10!

I am proud to see that the WWE has become more aware of the reality of mental illness. This documentary is an excellent way to inform and support the WWE as well as the mental health community. As a wrestling fan I can honestly say that I am a little surprised that there are not more wrestlers with mental health issues and wrestling on the top of their game. As a mental health advocate I am excited to see the growth of WWE as a recognized entity and as a sign of progress. I hope this documentary and the WWE's growth continues to show the WWE as a leader in mental health issues. We need more wrestlers like Jack Swagger and Matt Hardy and the WWE can take the next step. The WWE has done an excellent job of fighting back against the stigma that has plagued them in the past. As a wrestling fan I hope to see more wrestlers with mental health issues and WWE on the top of their game.

I never had any intention of watching any WWE video when I first saw it. Then I saw it was a featurette on a DVD. I was intrigued and wanted to see it. This movie was a breath of fresh air. It was pretty basic, but it was powerful and even a bit sad. It was great to see WWE come together with their union to help promote this documentary. It's great to see the industry not just hurting and not making any money, but actually making money. I recommend this to everyone. It will change your life. I never thought I'd ever see a movie that could do that. I hope I'm not the only one that enjoyed this. Great job!

This is a great documentary and really makes you think about what you're watching. It really shows what people go through everyday to get into the WWE. I think the majority of people are not aware of what they go through everyday in life to get into the WWE. The documentary is so well done and so interesting. I highly recommend this to any wrestling fan. It's a really interesting documentary and a great insight into what goes on inside the WWE.

I am not a wrestling fan, but have been a fan of WWE since it's inception. I was happy when it was released on DVD and was really looking forward to this movie. Unfortunately, the DVD was not in the theaters and we had to wait a few weeks for a return date. Fortunately, I did not pay to see this movie at the movies. I was able to purchase a DVD with the rest of my family. It was a good choice, but I was still disappointed. I'm not one of the people who think that WWE should be shut down, but this movie could have been better if the storyline had not been so confusing and the wrestlers not been so predictable. My family would have been very happy to see this movie if it had not been so disappointing. I would like to see the movie again and I would definitely watch it again with my kids. If you don't like wrestling, then this movie might not be for you.

This is a fascinating film. The editing is excellent and there are many shots of nature which I haven't seen before. I found it fascinating to watch the women's health concerns, and I found it fascinating to see the men's health concerns. I found it very interesting to see the struggle of what the male and female bodies are doing with the men's bodies. The movie did a great job of showing what this woman's desire is to be able to look after her health without having to worry about looking too perfect. The movie was very informative and it showed the various arguments that the men had with women. I thought the men's complaints were valid and I was very interested in what they were saying. I thought it was fascinating that they couldn't find a doctor to take care of them because they didn't want to have to be seen by a doctor that looked too perfect. The film showed how much of an emotional battle the men were having with their bodies. I found the film very entertaining. I recommend this film to everyone. I think it was very interesting and informative. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes the history of women's health issues and to anyone who enjoys a film that makes you think.

As the title suggests, this is a documentary that takes a look at professional wrestling. The story begins with the news that a wrestler has been killed during a match. A group of wrestlers called the Bloodsuckers decide to investigate the death. After a week of looking into the matter, they realize the guy was killed by a woman. However, they decide to hide the fact that he was killed by a woman and they say that the woman is the main event of the show. The woman is made to have all the victories and even gets the show title. However, the wrestlers are against this. The man who was killed had told them that the woman would win the show. They even tried to kill the woman's husband. However, the Bloodsuckers and the police were determined to find the real culprit and the story will lead them to that. This is a very good documentary, with great acting. This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It's really a great story that will leave you with a big feeling of emotions and you will find out the real story behind it. This is a good documentary that will keep you entertained.

This film is not for the squeamish. It is hard to watch at times. But, once you start watching, you'll never want to stop. The people in this film are NOT Hollywood's celebrity experts. They're real-life people who have chosen to put their own personal and professional life in front of the camera. This is the truth about life and sports. This is the truth about the NFL. The truth is. THIS FILM IS A GREAT FILM.

In short: no more hate speech. This film is simply not a documentary. This is a gripping documentary that leaves no doubt about its target. The only thing I would have done differently is to cut a few minutes out. That would have given a more impactful story, which it never really gets there. This film is a fascinating story that is told with a strong use of film and very well shot. This film is about wrestling and its place in the world. I am going to go watch this again. I was drawn to this film because of the style it takes. If you don't like wrestling, don't watch it. If you like wrestling, watch this film.

A lot of wrestling fans will find the interviews interesting. It is a personal favorite of mine. But I think this documentary really makes the point that there are many ways to see a wrestling event. This is not only true, it is also true that you can get a better education from seeing a great wrestling event. I do not think I have seen so many people at one time giving such a positive and appreciative comment about a wrestling event. This documentary is a MUST SEE for any wrestling fan, not only for the interview but also for the documentaries view on the events themselves.

This is the most recent documentary on the legendary bantamweight boxer Chuck Liddell. In many ways it feels like watching a magazine article on a legendary athlete. Chuck Liddell is a good-looking man with a large body, and a good sense of humor. He also has a strong sense of right and wrong, and can also use his fists and knees to make himself look the part. His wins over big-name opponents like Muhammad Ali, Sonny Liston, and George Foreman are truly spectacular. He is also known for a series of savage matches with the likes of "Rampage" Jackson and George Foreman. Liddell is a fascinating story, and I have watched many documentaries on him, but none of them touch this one. The documentary does not try to tell the actual story of Liddell's life, but rather tells us the parts of it that we want to know. It shows us the highs and lows of his life, as well as the support he received from his wife and children. It tells us what he thought of his life, and how he wants people to see him. I think this is a great film, and one that should be seen by anyone who has ever wanted to know the life of Chuck Liddell.

I had the pleasure of watching this on TV and I am now a fan of all things WWE. This is a documentary that tells the story of John Cena from his humble beginnings through to his rise to the top. The film focuses on Cena as a young wrestler that lost his father to a drug overdose. A hard day's work with his new team of brother Wahlburgs and friends, who he felt were the best of the best. Cena would go on to play the role of the King in WWE and as a superstar, became a world icon. The story tells the story of a man who tried to help other people in need and ended up taking away his own freedom. The film is filled with incredible footage and the truth is you could watch this and not be so disgusted with the entertainment industry. This film is not only about the rise of the WWE but also the rise of wrestling itself. This film does a great job of portraying the small beginnings of this all famous sport.

Wrestle was an amazing film that captured the true essence of how wrestling and its athletes are different than other people, and how people do not always like what they see in others. It really brings out the emotion and shows the hardships that these athletes face, and the lengths people go to in order to make a name for themselves. The people who watch this film will be inspired by it, and it will definitely help you in your life if you are an athlete. People who don't have a favorite wrestling, will not understand why people who don't like wrestling like it, but it will make you think about yourself and how you see yourself. For me personally, this film changed my life. I had to watch it a few times in order to get a feel for what wrestling really is, and to understand that, no matter what people say, it is not about what people see in others, but about what you see yourself. You are going to hear people say, "You should never be a wrestler," but I will say, if you really do not like it, just don't do it, and you will be okay. I really believe that this film will make a difference in the lives of these people, and in the lives of the people that they wrestle. If you are watching this film, I hope that you enjoy it, and I hope that you will be inspired. I really hope that you enjoy it.

This movie is a must see. It is amazing. I've never seen a film this beautiful. The script is amazing. I can't understand how people could not like this film. It is a must see. If you want to see the greatest movies ever then see this movie. It's so well done, you won't be able to take it out of your mind. I hope everyone will see this film and enjoy it. Thank you for watching it.

Watching the DVD of WWE's The World's Greatest Athlete II was an amazing experience. I can't remember a time when I was so fully invested in a movie. My stomach was in knots from laughing so hard, I nearly passed out. I'm not a wrestling fan, but I'm a wrestling fan to a large degree. I can remember my childhood, being a wrestling fan, and how many times I wanted to be a wrestler. This movie told the story of how I got into the business and how it has changed my life. It's truly a story that everyone should know.

I'm glad I saw this movie and I'm glad it is still available on YouTube. The only reason it isn't 100% on YouTube is because I rented it and it was hard to find. It was on Amazon, but I couldn't find it anywhere else. But now, I can now buy it and enjoy it. I want to watch it again and again and again and again. I can't wait to see the other movies they make with the guys, especially with Shia LaBeouf. If you are interested in WWE wrestling, you should watch this movie.

I saw this movie at the National Film Board of Canada, and I think it's a great movie. I think it's worth seeing again and again. It's a documentary, but not really a documentary. It's a lot like a documentary, but it's not a documentary. It's a great movie, and I think it's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. It's interesting and unique, and it's very well-done. This movie is really good, and it's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I highly recommend seeing this movie.

This is a really nice documentary. It shows the ups and downs of pro wrestling. And, I think that it is one of the most unbiased documentaries about pro wrestling ever. It tells you everything you need to know about pro wrestling, and it does it without ever telling you what to think or think you are being told. It shows you what is really happening on the wrestling mat, and that is what you need to know. It has great footage of the professional wrestling ring and the backstage, and it shows you the lives of the wrestlers, the ups and downs, and the career choices that these wrestlers have made. It tells you how they deal with the bumps and bruises that come with the job, and it shows you how they deal with their opponents. It shows you how pro wrestling is different than other sports, and how pro wrestling is different from any other sport. I think that it is one of the best documentaries ever made about pro wrestling. It does an excellent job of showing you the ups and downs, and it does it without ever being preachy or negative. The documentary is entertaining, and it has a great sense of humor that keeps you interested throughout the film. It tells the story of the wrestling industry, but it also tells you the stories of the wrestlers, so that you know what to expect from pro wrestling.

We first got to know John Cena when he was WWE superstar John Cena. He's played an essential role in the pro wrestling industry. I believe that he is the greatest professional wrestler that ever lived. He has acted his role well. And he's so charming, it's a pleasure to see him. His character is just so well written and so fun to watch. I have great respect for him and his fans. I love to see his fights, I love to see his amazing body. So I really like this movie and I think it's very well made. I'm also very impressed by the production design and the cinematography. It's a movie that I would really recommend you watch. I have no idea how much the film will be worth but I'm sure it will be something like $20.00 to $40.00 for a theatre ticket.

The story of a professional wrestler's life is told in a compelling and entertaining way. It is also a story of the perseverance and dedication of those who have taken up the challenge of becoming a professional wrestler. The documentary is well worth watching. The documentary does not go into great detail about the wrestlers' backgrounds, but it does provide some background information about the life of a professional wrestler. The documentary is entertaining and the wrestling matches are entertaining as well. The documentary does not portray a realistic view of the life of a professional wrestler, but it does provide some insight into the life of a wrestler.

It is the time of year for Christmas and you may be thinking, how can a film have no Christmas themes? There are hundreds of Christmas films made, and each one has its own special moments. Wrestle is no different. The story of the film is about a group of wrestlers who wrestled in Japan in the mid 80's. They all have an original idea for a Christmas movie, and this is where the film begins. As the film progresses the wrestlers begin to have problems, and the wrestlers have to find a way to get back to Japan. This film is very special because of the wrestling itself, the writing, and the special moments. This is a movie that you will want to watch over and over again. It is a wonderful film and should be seen by every wrestling fan. In short, I would give Wrestle a 10 out of 10!

This documentary was extremely well done. It was not a documentary, but more of a series of interviews with some of the wrestlers. There was a lot of great information that was not included in the other documentaries. The best part was the interviews with the wrestlers themselves. I was very impressed with the interviews. The wrestlers talked about their feelings about wrestling, the motivation behind the wrestling, the problems they had with the business, and the things they were proud of. The interviews were very interesting, and I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in wrestling. I give it an 8/10.

I really enjoyed this documentary. It was very well done. It was an interesting look into the inner workings of a professional wrestling promotion. The footage was well done, and the interviews with the wrestlers were very interesting. The documentary was very informative and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys wrestling. The only complaint I have is that it did not show the backstage footage of the main event of the PPV. I would have liked to have seen more of that footage. I would also like to have seen the footage of the matches that the wrestlers did not have to do in the documentary. Overall, I think this documentary was well done. It was very informative and interesting. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys wrestling. I give it an 8 out of 10.

This is a documentary about the WWE's "WrestleMania" event that took place in Atlanta, Georgia. The documentary is well-made and the footage is very interesting. The movie is divided into two parts. The first part is a behind-the-scenes look at the wrestling show and the backstage. The second part is a look at the live show itself. The second part is very interesting and you get a feel for the atmosphere of the show. It is also interesting to see how the WWE has changed since the first WrestleMania. The movie also has some great interviews with Vince McMahon and the rest of the wrestlers. The movie is very well-made and you can tell that a lot of time was spent on it. I really enjoyed this movie.
