From James Toback, TYSON is a stylistically inventive portrait of the eponymous former heavy-weight boxing champion. Through a mixture of original interviews, archival footage and photos, a surprisingly complex depiction of the man, the legend, the truth emerges. A no-holds-barred portrait of Tyson in his own words.
