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 movie is by far one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is a true story of how a very special and unique sport was born. It was a struggle to find a new sport, and it was an incredible race to bring it to the masses. To do that you need a perfect partner. and that is how this film comes together. This movie is a must see for anyone who loves wrestling, or even just a great film. The fighting is great, the story is amazing, the acting is perfect, the music is awesome, the cinematography is beautiful, the costumes are fantastic, and the story is fantastic. It is the perfect film to watch with your friends and family. It is a movie that I will watch over and over again. I have watched it many times and I will never get bored of it. This movie will be a classic for years to come.

As I am a huge wrestling fan, I found this movie very interesting. There was a lot of footage, and some of it was very nice. The wrestling matches were very good, and the wrestling style was very good. I also enjoyed the commentary from wrestlers like Ric Flair, and the on-camera interview with The Rock. It was very interesting to hear from the people who are very close to the wrestling business. The main problem with this movie is the fact that it is based on a true story, and it is only a small part of what actually happened. Also, I feel that it is a little too short. The majority of the film was wrestling, and I found that it dragged a little bit. Overall, it was a good film. I recommend it.

If you're into the action sports then you'll love this movie. This movie is more of a documentary, showing footage from the actual matches. The movie is basically a look at the rivalry between the two nations. While it is important to show what the real rivalry is between the USA and Japan, the film also shows the different styles and cultures of the two nations. The film shows how the two nations are a complete opposite of each other, with the USA being the dominant nation and the Japanese being the underdog. This movie is good for fans of the sport. There's nothing more to say other than it's a great movie and you should definitely watch it. 7/10

If you have ever been in a wrestling match, you will immediately recognize this documentary as a classic. It is so well done and so well filmed that I will be adding it to my collection of all time wrestling greats. The acting is superb and the directing is great. The documentary is so well done, I think it's only a matter of time before this documentary is released on DVD. This documentary is not only great entertainment, but also great education and it is so important to people to know about what goes on behind the scenes of wrestling. The documentary is a must see for any wrestling fan and I highly recommend it.

This is a good documentary, even though it contains all the same stereotypes about the Soviet Union, it is nonetheless a good movie. The main characters, the boxer, the wrestler, the actress, the president, the coach, etc. All these people have some common characteristics. I think that is the strength of this documentary. The fight scenes are pretty good. The boxing scenes are good too. The most striking scene is when the boxer goes up against the coach and wins the fight. It is definitely worth seeing.

I was not expecting to like this movie, but I really did. My husband and I watched it together, and he really liked it. It was a little slow, but it was a good film. I was just happy to see it on DVD, because it was really worth it. The fights were amazing, especially the title match, and the ending was really good. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who likes boxing or just wants to watch a good documentary. I will definitely be buying it when it comes out on DVD.

I think the only thing that people should watch is the interview with Eddie Guerrero, but i think the rest of the documentary is really good, and even the commentary, it's great. It's like the documentary is an animated film, and that's really good. It's the documentary about a wrestler from the 1990's called Eddie Guerrero, who is the main guy in the WWE, and the first guy in the WWE, but he is the second biggest name, but he is really really good. He has a really big following, and he is a really big superstar in the WWE. So if you really want to watch, then you should really watch this documentary. It's a really good documentary, and it's really good.

Wrestle is an excellent documentary about the strange and controversial wrestling promotion called The World Wrestling Federation. Wrestling was originally a sport but it was later called "Wrestling" because it was held in the ring. They have a lot of different styles of wrestling, it is one of the most popular sports in the world. The wrestling is done by wrestlers who are famous in the world. In the video they show the history of the company and how it started. In the beginning it was an amateur wrestling promotion. The company was not a success and was forced to change. Eventually the company was sold to Vince McMahon who was the owner. Vince McMahon is the biggest wrestling promoter in the world and is known for being a very rich businessman. He has also helped the company to be successful. When he got the company he did not want to sell it to Vince McMahon but to Jimmy Snuka. Jimmy Snuka was the owner of the World Wrestling Federation, a wrestling promotion that was known for doing "The Million Dollar match". Snuka also wanted to buy the company but Vince McMahon stopped him. Vince McMahon is not the only wrestler that was against the sale. Vince McMahon had told Jimmy Snuka to not sell the company because they had sold him the company so he wanted to keep it. So Snuka decided to sell the company and Vince McMahon bought it. The video was a good documentary that was worth watching. I would recommend watching this if you like wrestling or if you are interested in this wrestling promotion. It is well worth watching.

Wrestle is a documentary which tracks the lives of three wrestlers who all have different personalities. These wrestlers all have different views on the world. These wrestlers are not just competitors, but also the main characters in this documentary. The documentary is about each wrestler's life and how he lives it. For me this was the best part of the movie. It's really a good film. I would recommend this film to anyone who loves wrestling or just wants to learn more about these wrestlers.

The only thing I can say about this documentary is that I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I was prepared to be riveted by the subject matter and the interviewees, but I just didn't get the same pleasure I would have liked. As an aside, I have not been able to find a single interview with John Cena. I know that WWE doesn't like to admit it, but this documentary is probably why they never worked with him before, and why he had to be interviewed so much. It's pretty obvious that the WWE doesn't want to get the same buzz as John Cena, and therefore, they keep their interviews short and sweet. They don't want to make him look too cool or anything. This documentary is mostly from Cena's perspective, which is fine, but it doesn't really add anything to the story. The documentary has a few good moments, but it's nowhere near enough to make me want to watch it again.

The thing that I love about wrestling is the spirit. There is nothing else like it, and I can't say that about any other sport. Wrestling is very real, and this documentary shows that. The documentary was shot in Japan and a lot of it is on the WWF Network, so if you're a wrestling fan, you should watch it.

I'm not sure how I got here. I was actually thinking that this was going to be a really great documentary on the business of professional wrestling, and that's exactly what it turned out to be. I really enjoyed the interviews with wrestlers and their friends and fans. I loved the stories and footage of wrestlers and how they became famous. I loved the historical information on wrestlers. It was really cool to see how these guys, the wrestlers, have had their ups and downs in their careers and how it all led up to their professional wrestling career. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the documentary is going to be in the future, and hopefully it will be a lot more interesting and interesting. I really enjoyed this documentary, and I hope it will be able to be put out to many people, because I think it's a really good documentary that I recommend to anyone.

I never thought I would have watched a movie that was so emotionally draining. The first time I watched it I was on the edge of my seat. I had to rewind it a few times and it got more and more intense. I think it was the second time that I watched it that I actually got upset. This movie is about two men who go through a grueling and dangerous training program that will take them to the top of the world. One of the men is a wrestler, and the other is a boxer. The training is so intense that they will not be able to eat for weeks, and they have to wear a special mask. This is the first time in their lives that they have had to take these drastic measures to get better. The two men will be world champions. This is one of the most difficult things that they will ever have to do. It's not something you would expect to see on a movie screen, but it is true. The movie is great because it shows you how the training is like. It's not just the training, but the feelings of fear, fear of losing, fear of the critics, and the fear of losing the title. The movie is amazing because it shows you the feelings that these men have when they are on the screen. It's not just training, it's their entire lives. It's a true story, and it's amazing that they did it without any special effects. They are the real stars of the movie. The whole movie is so good that it almost hurts. It's so intense and depressing. It's very difficult to watch because you don't want to go through this. It's so sad, but you just want to be able to watch it over and over again. I think it's a great movie and I would recommend it to anyone. I think you should watch it and see for yourself.

I loved this documentary. I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I think it is a great documentary that will keep you interested and interested until the very end. I love that it is not a Hollywood-type of documentary. It is not one of those "That's what the other wrestlers are like, that's what I am like" documentaries. It's a story of one man's journey to achieve his dream and to realize that dreams come true. I really enjoyed the way he talks about his experiences in the ring and the amount of emotion he can bring out in his audience. I think it's a great documentary. It's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about wrestling.
