4 grapplers under the mask, 20 January 2009
Author: DJJOEINC from Virginia Beach

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Lucha Libre : Life Behind The Mask -new to DVD this was made in 2005.A solid look at a barber/luchadore as he prepares for his final match.If you are looking for an overview of Lucha or a historical retrospective- this is the wrong DVD.This follows 4 grapplers on the California/Mexico border that wrestler before small crowds because they are passionate about Lucha.This movie is mostly in Spanish with subtitles.The movie is 70 minutes long with no extras.If you are curious about Lucha culture -this is a nice peek into that world- however the lack of extras make this a Netflix slot at best. B-
