One reason "Wrestle" is so effective is that director Herbert and cinematographer Sinisa Kukic made the decision to move to Huntsville for the duration of the shoot.
Profiling four members of an underdog high-school wrestling team in Huntsville, Alabama, "Wrestle" constructs an empathetic portrait of a mat that's anything but level.
Though hardly the first movie of its kind, it feels more vital than many of its fellow descendants of Hoop Dreams, and reminds us there are more than a couple of sports offering pathways to a college degree.
This engrossing snapshot has a good shot at exposure beyond the festival circuit, with public television being a logical destination.
A thoroughly engrossing tale of one young coach's attempt to grow boys into men via the discipline of competition grappling, and a blistering depiction of failing public high schools in America.
Will these young men conquer in life as they sometimes do on the mat? We're not entirely sure, but we grow to like these kids and wish them well. That's a reflection of the involvement created by a good documentary.
The film spends time getting to know each of the four young men, who despite the difficulties they face in their arduous climb to adulthood, are brimming with vitality.
In its sobering conclusions, Wrestle has us question how much we undervalue poor children's lives, circumstances and education in this country.
Like the best sports films, the sport itself is window dressing, window dressing drawing the eye into a fascinating rumination on race and class in modern day America.
"Wrestle" is a moving and haunting portrait of four young men fighting to win a golden ticket.
... finds engaging subjects to paint a gritty and universal picture of contemporary adolescence and the value of athletics. The crowd-pleasing result leaves plenty to cheer about.
Sometimes hopeful, other times heartbreaking, Wrestle is an honest portrait of disadvantaged American youth that will inspire empathy and leave viewers with lots to ponder.
