Boxing Gym

Rated NR 91 minutes 2010

Master documentary maker Frederick Wiseman observes the daily grind at an Austin, Texas boxing gym with the same dispassionate yet penetrating gaze he focused on the Parisian ballet in La Danse. The fighters and wannabes who come to former prize fighter Richard Lord’s funky gym all have a seriousness of purpose. Whether they box as a pastime or as hopeful professionals, their chosen field is one of violence, and that reflects in their body language. Lots of girls and women slapping the speed bags, and a surprising number of babies. Also every training exercise you’ve ever seen. Wiseman’s field of vision keeps widening, magnificently. (91 min.)
