2009, 90 mins. 35mm print courtesy Sony Pictures Classics. With Mike Tyson. As a director, screenwriter, and documentary filmmaker, James Toback (Fingers, The Gambler, Bugsy, Black and White, The Big Bang) has consistently explored the extremes of human behavior and psychology. For this innovative documentary portrait, he finds a perfect subject in Mike Tyson, the heavyweight boxing champion who grew up on the streets of Brooklyn and went through a rollercoaster career filled with fame and controversy. Toback's empathy with his subject results in a remarkably candid and revealing portrait of a man filled with surprising contradictions.

About Museum of the Moving Image
Museum of the Moving Image advances the public understanding and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media. It does so by collecting, preserving, and providing access to moving-image related artifacts; screening significant films and other moving-image works; presenting exhibitions of artifacts, artworks, and interactive experiences; and offering educational and interpretive programs to students, teachers, and the general public. Construction is currently underway on a major expansion of the Museum, designed by architect Thomas Leeser. The project entails a complete renovation of the existing first floor and construction of a three-story addition housing a new theater, screening room, galleries, and a multi-classroom education center. The grand opening of the expanded Museum is scheduled for 2010. For more information, visit movingimage.us
