Cary Elwes: That's the first question they ask me, wasn't it fun to go drinking with Andre. Cause they think of him as this legendary drinker and they think it's funny, but in fact he drank because he was in pain. And I asked him one day and he explained to me that his spine and his neck and his knees gave him lots of trouble.

Astonishing Documentary. A fascinating and real look at an individual.
14 April 2018 | by Nixon_CarmichaelSee all my reviews

HBO has done it again with yet another incredible documentary, this time about professional wrestling phenomenon, André The Giant.

The documentary is rather comprehensive in the way that it opens on Andre's modest upbringing in a small town in France to his rise to become an almost mythological figure, and finally ending with the story of his somewhat untimely death in 1993.

Simultaneously, the film managed to regale the viewers with whimsical tales of Andre's legendary drinking and his weird knack for flatulence but also it looks at man who brought joy to both those around him and fans world wide, all while suffering in pain most of the time.

Bafflingly, the film actually manages to get a few good tugs at the heart strings as the whole thing unfolds. It's really quite an interesting look that should prove intriguing to both wrestling fans and non fans alike.

This is one of the best things I've seen in a while.
