Best documentary I've seen.
17 July 2005 | by (Indiana, USA) – See all my reviews

I watched this film on my portable DVD player with my dad on our way to St. Louis. That film helped my dad and me bond more than I could imagine. Jeff Santo showed a side of Ron that I did not know that taught me a lesson...stay on top of life even at its lowest times. Ron Santo has been through many rough times in his life and I have never heard him complain. What a true testimony to his character! The film does a great job bringing the viewer into Ron's greatest life accomplishments to his lowest times in his life back to his greatest accomplishments all in 91 minutes. The only complaint that I have is that the film wasn't longer! Definitely a great movie to watch, let alone own...it's full of extras including a candid taping of Ron in conversation with Randy Hundley.

Get it, watch it, and learn from it!
