Andre the Giant

Fascinating documentary into the life of possibly the most comic-book figure of the 80s: pro wrestler and actor Andre Roussimoff, “The Giant”. Getting a look behind the curtain at the lives of wrestlers is always fairly abnormal topic matter, but this was magnified (in many respects) in the case of this 7-foot-and-then-some Frenchman. Re-watching footage from iconic Wrestlemania matches it became clear that he was in incredible pain throughout most of it, and nobody had any idea or control over whether he’d follow the scripted storyline. An absolute legend. 👍
