Tyson is a riveting, fascinating, new documentary about the life and times of former heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson.

This is not a valentine to the former champ but an honest stream of consciousness.

Director James Toback had an all-access pass to Tyson and their conversations pull no punches.

Sometimes Tyson makes sense, sometimes he doesn't, but this is a movie about warts and all.

I have to admit, I'm perversely fascinated by Mike Tyson, and this movie about his angry tumultuous life answered a lot of my questions.
