Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The taunts in the ring may be make-believe, but the slams against the mat are agonizingly genuine in Robert Greene's vivid documentary "Fake It So Real"...
Fresh: An affectionate portrait of an all-American subculture.
Fresh: Though the matches themselves, with their crude narrative frameworks and stereotypes, may be something of an anticlimax, the film unearths the tough and complex life experiences they distill.
Fresh: An engrossing documentary that lends humanity to independent pro wrestling's savage theater of machismo.
