5.0 out of 5 stars One Hell Of A Story!, 13 Sept. 2004
This review is from: Hitman Hart Wrestling With Shadows [DVD] (DVD)
This is absolutely brilliant! The direction Jay was able to follow Bret Hitman Hart, one of the most well known wrestlers of the 90s, he followed him around his home and work with a camera for a year, but what eventually happened was that Jay caught on camera one of teh biggest double crosses in history. This story is about one man, a hero living in an antihero world, where the bad guy prevails.
Anyone who knows about Bret or is keen on the Wrestling politics, then this DVD will shock and astoud you, but not only is this a great true story, this is superbly edited and filmed by Jay, he certainly shows a flair for the camera and the music and sound evoke so much emotion from the film. I dragged my mate to watch this, and he also gives it the five star treatment it bloody well deserves. Another special interview with Bret 12 months afterwards is very sad, this was the beginning of the downfall of The Hitman, I have a copy of this and I too believe it's as good as Fahrenheit 9/11 for documentaries.
I'm trying to keep this short, as I don't want to say anymore as it should be a big surprise to you, it's one of those real life twists on a documentary, if you liked the WWE and Vince before you watch this, after finishing the film you would have branded him as public enemy number one, him and is sidekick; Shawn Michaels.
For anyone who is buying this in the double pack along with Beyond The Mat, I have to admit that this is ten times better than Beyond The Mat.
