The Cage Fighter

Description
When life hits him hard, Joe Carman punches back. Newly 40, Joe juggles long hours working in a boiler room, an ongoing custody battle, his wife’s chronic illness, and the demands of raising four girls. The one place he finds release is in the ring, where he competes in the bruising sport of mixed martial arts. Despite the promise he made to his family to stop fighting, Joe continues to train secretly, determined to prove that he can keep up with the new crop of younger, up-and-coming competitors. But as he contends with a series of increasingly worrying health scares, the question arises: how much is Joe willing to risk—his family, his marriage, maybe even his life—to keep fighting? A true-life tale of resilience that unfolds with all the drama of fiction, The Cage Fighter is a riveting look at the demons that drive a man to push himself to the limit.

At just 81 minutes, "The Cage Fighter" has been whittled down to its fighting weight, trimmed of every ounce of fat.

Shot in a raw but well-developed vérité style, the documentary swerves neatly from Carman's high-adrenaline matches to him goofing off with his kids to the dark and violent people in his life (his father, his coach) who influence the choices he makes.

"The Cage Fighter" is hardly epic in scope or originality, but it is uncommon to watch this degree of open self-flagellation on screen.

Maddeningly vague, omits pertinent facts and raises more questions than it answers.

Carman may initially seem like an "average Joe," but both he and this thoughtful film contain multitudes.

Though it may leave audiences with a fair number of questions unanswered, "The Cage Fighter" is engrossing and notably well-packaged within its limitations.

The Cage Fighter isn't sentimental about the notion of an aging sports hero who needs one more day in the proverbial sun, recognizing that desire as macho folly.

Thanks to the extraordinary access Joe and his family granted to Unay, the pain comes through seemingly unfiltered. The anguish is so raw and the sorrow so intense that the viewer feels like a voyeur.
