Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Fallen Champ: The Untold Story of Mike Tyson (1993)

Directed by Barbara Kopple

Starring Mike Tyson, Kevin Rooney, Desiree Washington, Curtis Ratliff


Is he a rapist or a boxer? A film about the sex life, not the boxing ability, of Mike Tyson. It’s as if the filmmakers intended to destroy Mike’s image. Mike wasn’t there to defend himself. In a biography, I’ve always thought, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

Not bad overall. Givens is funny.
