Tyson Documentary Screening at CIFF Sunday

Posted By on Wed, Mar 25, 2009 at 2:02 PM

The critically acclaimed documentary on Mike Tyson is showing this weekend at the Cleveland International Film Festival. It's gotten rave reviews, one of which you can read here, after its premiere at Cannes.

I'm pretty pumped for it and will have a full review for you folks on Monday. The trailer looks absolutely riveting, but the rise, fall, rise, fall of one of the most intriguing athletes ever is bound to make for some good drama, natch.

Warning: The movie screens at 1:45 on Sunday and is open to passholders and standy-by only — meaning there's no advance ticket sale. Show up early if you want to wait in line for what is probably one of the most anticipated films of the Cleveland International Film Festival.
