I saw some clips online (a news show had the writer/director/main actor on with a co-star) and the 2 clips shown from the flick were simple enough, but they hooked me quite a bit. Maybe it's cuz I like Ben Ratner and boxing but i think there was more to it.

He's a simple character that i understood immediately, but he embodies things that I find fascinating: a former champion boxer who offered up his body to become a great in his sport and probably took a few beatings as he handed some out himself, now living an isolated life in his latter years, punch drunk and stuck in a time when he once reigned in the ring. That's just the character. I'm curious about the story.

These sorts of characters are enticing to me, especially in boxing (I love reading biographical accounts of boxers more than any other vocations out there). Dedication, discipline, a chance at victory, and if all goes well- a belt on the wall... then years go by and the sacrifices these guys make- comes to collect (a lot of the time) from their body, from their mind.

It's just powerful stuff for a character study.

Anyhow, Anyone know if this short is available anywhere?
