Not surprisingly, given his profound significance, there is no shortage of material about Muhammad Ali on film. What marks this documentary out is its unprecedented access to Ali’s journals, as well as intimate interviews with those closest to him and other legends of the boxing ring, providing unusually stark insight into his personal as well as public life. Covering the period from the then Cassius Clay first picking up some boxing gloves, to Ali’s final fight in 1981, the film captures the man’s courage, wit, grace and extraordinary charisma. An engaging (if one-sided) introductory piece for those unfamiliar with the legendary boxer.
