Tyson, the Film

Mike Tyson’s star faded long ago, which means that he’s now the perfect subject for a documentary film. Well, wish granted! The boxer is the subject of a new documentary by James Toback called Tyson, and he sits down for a long and fascinating interview with The Guardian. "When I watched it alone,” Tyson says, “I realized why people had certain opinions about me. When I was upset, I got upset like everybody else, but I'm an extremist, so when I got upset, I took it to the next level. I took it to the level of being almost violently upset. And I realize, if I was sitting next to that guy, he'd make me nervous. That guy was impulsive. Unpredictable."
