Description 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.

Wrestle: A documentary about the future of MMA in the United States, how MMA has grown to the point where it is the most popular sport in the world, and how we can see a possible break into the mainstream, but how many other sports are still on the margins. It is a great movie that takes a different approach to a sports documentary, with the use of interviews and in-depth interviews with the people who are involved in MMA. The movie is a lot more focused than other documentaries, with interviews with the people involved in the sport of MMA, and then the people who made it happen, and then the people who watch it. The interviews are well done, and it is fun to see who are the people that are involved with this sport. I like how the movie is divided in different parts, like interviews with the UFC fighters, who are the ones making the most money, who are the people that are in the front line of this sport, and then the people that make the movie, who are the people who are in the back line. There are also some people who are involved in the sport, but don't do much, like the people who are doing the training and training camps. These interviews are good and informative, but they are not as good as the ones that are with the fighters themselves. The fights are good, but not great. I like how the movie takes a different approach to a sports documentary, but it is still an important one. I think that it is one of the best documentaries I have seen about the future of MMA, because it is not only about the sport, but also about the people that make it happen. It is a good movie to watch, and it is definitely worth watching.
