Rating History

GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling
14 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

After enjoying the premiere season of Netflix's Glow, I watched the 2012 documentary on the original all-female wrestling show (also available on Netflix). It was interesting and surprisingly moving. Personal, at times raw, interviews are woven with archived media to create a rich tapestry of storytelling. The documentary is less about the popular wrestling show and more about the women's experiences before, during, and after that seminal and surreal time in their lives. Glow: The Story of The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling is a great example of what a documentary is supposed to be like.

Remake. Two and a half stars for the movie on its own. It's so-so, though like the original, it's not for the squeamish. Two stars compared to Park Chan-wook's version. I hate to say it, but the American version of the story blunted the tragedy and made it not nearly as artistic. Also, the annoying, effeminate, European villain is a tired convention that made the story feel cheap.
