TYSON is acclaimed indie director James Toback’s stylistically inventive portrait of a mesmerizing Mike Tyson. Through a mixture of original interviews and archival footage and photographs, Toback allows Tyson to reveal himself with eloquence and a pervasive vulnerability. The film ranges from Tysonâ??s earliest memories of growing up on the mean streets of Brooklyn through his entry into the world of boxing, to his rollercoaster ride in the funhouse of worldwide fame and fortunes won and lost.
