Description Hoop Dreams goes to the mat in WRESTLE, an intimate coming-of-age documentary about four members of a high-school wrestling team at Huntsville's J.O. Johnson High School, a longstanding entry on Alabama's list of failing schools. Coached by teacher Chris Scribner, teammates Jailen, Jamario, Teague, and Jaquan each face challenges far beyond a shot at the State Championship: splintered family lives, drug use, teenage pregnancy, mental health struggles, and run-ins with the law threaten to derail their success on the mat and lock any doors that could otherwise open. Tough-love coach Scribner isn't off the hook, either; he must come to terms with his own past conflicts while unwittingly wading into the complexities of race, class and privilege in the South. Director Suzannah Herbert and Co-Director Lauren Belfer captured over 650 hours of footage during the course of the team's final season to create this closely observed, deeply affecting depiction of growing up disadvantaged in America today.

Not very many movies can put you on the edge of your seat when the score gets so high. This one, the crowd in a theater cheering, when Hogan beats Austin. The difference between him and a champion is not that high, but the crowd in the theater when the match is over, it's so loud, that I could hardly hear the announcer. This movie shows how bad wrestlers are, and how they are treated. The acting is good, the footage is good, the story is good. But it is about two wrestlers, Hogan and Austin. And the end, is so short, it's almost like they could have been left in the middle of nowhere. The music is really nice, the camera is very good, but the biggest problem with this movie is Hogan, he just can't act. He just doesn't have the passion, the heart, the guts. He can't seem to be serious, he can't seem to be convincing. It's like he is not a wrestler. He just seems like a phony. His face looks fake, his lips look fake. You know, I've never seen a real wrestler who can act like this. So I think it's unfair to judge the movie on Hogan, because it's a lot more important than that. I think if the movie is more about Austin, then it is a much better movie. But the rest of the movie is good, I was very impressed with the story, the editing, the photography, the acting, the directing, the filming, everything. It's one of those movies, where you don't know if it's good or not, you just want to watch it. I think this movie is great, it's a great movie, but it is not one of my favorite movies.

It's easy to see why this documentary got so much negative press. The fact that it was produced by a wrestling fan isn't a positive factor, either. The film is well made and the editing is smooth. The interviews with wrestlers are interesting and a few stand out as particularly interesting. I think the problems are in the editing. Some of the clips are presented in the order they were originally introduced and the next clips aren't shown until later. The movie is only 85 minutes long and some of the transitions are awkward. It also has a few places where the editing is even more awkward. One such example is the scenes where Bob Backlund (the WWF's longest-running wrestler) talks about his family and how his son has died. His voice is muffled at times and the cuts are jarring. The editing also goes on for a few minutes longer than it should, but not as long as it should. This editing is bad enough, but it's the editing that really makes this a bad film. It's obvious that the writers and the editors were trying to keep it PG-13, but that doesn't make it any better. This film is a huge disappointment for all involved. The film is good and entertaining and the interviews are interesting and well done, but the editing is incredibly jarring and there are a lot of moments that should be edited out and the movie becomes a mess. The editing makes it hard to follow and it's not a film I would recommend. It's a shame that this was produced by a fan of the product. It was also a shame that this was the only documentary on the subject that the WWF didn't pick up, so maybe that's a good thing.
