director robert aldrich (baby jane) goes out with a bang in his last film mixing up genres & making it work.

Something I was pleased to see turn up on TCM recently, and I went into it not knowing what to really expect, beyond the fact that it'd been on a friend's 'underrated dramas' list awhile back. I really enjoyed the look into the fairly bleak but occasionally funny or charming world of the small-time ladies wrestling circuit. Well worth a peep if you have a chance.

Total sleeper. It gets to it's point but does not waste anytime with unneeded info. You don't get all the information but you get what you need to understand what is going on and care about the people in the story.
