Review Some kids beat him up once and he couldn't stop them. Another kid killed one of his homing pigeons, and he fell upon him with fury. And that is the back story of Mike Tyson, a boxer known as the Baddest Man on the Planet. When he went into the ring, he was proving he would never be humiliated again and getting revenge for a pigeon he loved...I believe it really is that simple. There is no rage like that of a child, hurt unjustly, the victim of a bully...James Toback's "Tyson" is a documentary with no pretense of objectivity. Here is Mike Tyson's story in his own words, and it is surprisingly persuasive. He speaks openly and with apparent honesty about a lifetime during which, he believes, he was often misunderstood. From a broken family, he was in trouble at a tender age and always felt vulnerable; his childhood self is still echoed in his lisp, as high-pitched as a child's. It's as if the victim of big kids is still speaking to us from within the intimidating form of perhaps the most punishing heavyweight champion of them all...Toback is remarkably persuasive. He was offering immortality. It is a tempting offer. In ancient Egypt, an architect named Toback must have convinced a pharaoh to erect the first pyramid. What he offered Tyson was the opportunity to vindicate himself. There is no effort to show "both sides," but in fact the case against Tyson is already well known, and what is unexpected about "Tyson" is that afterward we feel sympathy for the man, and more for the child inside.

Quotes
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun What emerges is a fallen warrior's tale: the inside story of a man bloodied and bowed.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle Toback has found a documentary subject as tragic and ridiculous, as bizarre and driven, as the heroes of his other films.
