Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler
(2008) introduced many moviegoers to the sweaty, bloody, brutal world of
professional wrestling on the fringes of the WWE. Robert Greene shows us more
of this subculture in his documentary Fake
It So Real, in which he explores with cinema-vérité
intensity the dedicated gladiators of the Millennium Wrestling Federation of
Lincolnton, North Carolina.
Greene will be on hand for discussions after the screening. It's at the Brattle
Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | Mon, July 25 @ 8 pm | $10; $8 students, seniors |
