The Best Documentary of 1999
30 January 2001 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

On the Ropes(1999) is one of the most powerful documentaries to come out of the USA in many years. It deals with the fortunes and injustices of the boxing world. The most tragic segment of this film is the story of the woman boxer who went to prison for a crime she didn't comment just because of the lousy justice system and the fact that she didn't have much money. What seen on the screen is probably the most realistic depictions of boxing life that has ever been shown at the cinema. Has to be one of the greatest documentaries of all time. Anyone who interested in boxing or wants to be a boxer should watch this film to learn of the realities of this brutal sport.
