  • Stay far, far away unless you can handle the copious amounts of blood--and agonizing psychological problems-- that its participants face on what seems like a daily basis. show more

  • Isn't a slick documentary; some of it feels like Blaustein's home movie about being a wrestling fan. But it has a hypnotic quality. show more

  • What the film does, brilliantly, is provoke the intelligent fan to wonder if there's a limit to how far the proceedings can go.
