Cinema Club Presents: Tyson

Tuesday, December 1st at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

cover of Tyson DVDTyson is acclaimed indie director James Toback's stylistically inventive portrait of a mesmerizing Mike Tyson. Toback allows Tyson to reveal himself without inhibition and with eloquence and a pervasive vulnerability. Through a mixture of original interviews and archival footage and photographs, a startlingly complex, fully-rounded human being emerges. In its depiction of a man rising from the most debased circumstances to unlimited heights, destroyed by his own hubris, Tyson emerges as a modern day version of classic Greek tragedy. Rated: R

Discussion to follow movie. Refreshments will be served.
