James Toback’s Tyson was one of the movies that Jay and I caught at Sundance this year, and it’s definitely a compelling watch, even if you’re not a big fan of boxing. With his controversial and eccentric nature, Mike Tyson is an ideal subject for a documentary. He’s both terrifying and hilarious, a hero and a monster. What makes this movie special is Toback’s close personal relationship to Tyson, which allowed him to capture some pretty candid moments.
Sony Pictures Classics have finally released a trailer for this flick, and I think it summarizes the movie quite well. Watch it now in the embedded player below, or see it in HD over at Apple.com. You can also read Jay’s review and check out our short video podcast on the subject. Tyson hits select theatres on April 24th.
