Critic Reviews for Boxing Gym
Wiseman captures these staccato polyrhythms both visually and sonically. There's not a lot of hitting here; he clearly delights in the sport's balletic beauty.
Even with no traditional narrative, there are wonderful discoveries to be made in Wiseman's film, which is a nice complement to the experienced director's ballet-themed last feature, "La Danse: The Paris Opera Ballet."
I find Wiseman's anti-narrative vow of chastity off-putting; I like a story with my pictures.
Don't go to Boxing Gym expecting pugilistic melodrama about long-shot underdogs. There's not an ounce of fat or cliché in Frederick Wiseman's new documentary.

Reflective and trancelike. Brilliant.
