Tyson (May-2008)

Director: James Toback

Writer: James Toback

Keywords: Sports Documentary, Boxing, Biography

Heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson is interviewed about his life, from his days as a young hoodlum on the streets of Brooklyn, through his training by the late Cus D'Amato, his unification of the heavyweight titles, and eventual fall from grace. Twenty years after winning the title, Tyson seems a changed man -- calm, conflicted, regretful, having reined the brutality of his youth -- yet it is unclear how he plans to make a successful life for himself outside of boxing.
