True Stories: Tyson

10:00pm Tuesday, May 10 on M4

The True Stories strand, which showcases the best international feature documentaries, presents James Toback’s film of Mike Tyson’s life, told in the ex-fighter’s own words. Made in 2008, it finds the controversial ex-heavyweight champion ruefully reflecting on his past, but he is also forthcoming about his difficult childhood and what the loss of trainer Cus D’Amato meant to him.
