Loved this. Amazing footage of Tyson in his prime, breathtaking in the power and speed. In prison at 12, life turned around by boxing, world champion at 20, then his mentor dies and he seemingly goes off the rails, an 8 month marriage to Robin Given, jail time for rape of Desiree Washington with some of the most brutal assessment of prison time that you will hear, everyone swindles him including Don King who he ends up assaulting. Interesting fact - the face tattoo is Maori. Couldn't help thinking when listening to him that he sounded like a child, possibly the blows to the head, although the words and the analysis were certainly there.
Passable. I am kind of glad they bought Bill and Ted back, but kind of wish they hadn't. Keanu Reeves looked old and decrepit, and I couldn't watch the movie without thinking that all the time. Even running he looked ancient. Their kids were annoying.
It's fascinating if you are interested in the musical creative process, or the most famous band in the world or one of the seminal moments in music history. Mostly the film has a miserable undercurrent with the famous Paul and George row and generally no-one looking too happy. But there are bright spots which shine even brighter because of the context, in particular the jamming of Octopuses Garden. The rooftop concert is absolutely fantastic, all these people in 70s fashion and E-type jags driving around. I had no idea the police came and stopped it although the Beatles were on their 2nd rendition of Get back. Sounded fantastic and looked like they were enjoying it, so another bright spot.
Fascinating premise for this film of a theory that we were born without the right amount of alcohol in our blood and require a constant small amount. The scene where they are all drunk fishing for cod is absolutely hilarious. There were less laughs in this film then I thought there would be but that's not to say there aren't some genuinely very funny moments, but there are also some dark moments too. The film did make me think about the nature of being happy, perhaps, like in the film, it was cracking open a beer and listening to a record, nothing complicated. Or that maybe more creativity comes from being slightly less in control. I read about the theory afterwards - it is actually real but completely discredited, interestingly though some animals have a small amount of alcohol in their blood which acts as antifreeze but does not render them drunk.
