Another day at the gym
4 February 2015 | by DogFilmCriticSee all my reviews

I saw this film last night and i was surprised their way of showing the public what this film is about,from the beginning they show you what the film will be about which is a boxing gym as the title suggests, from there you go on a personal tour of how it operates to how is taught the sweet science.

see the point of view of the coaches and members that train there regularly from fighters to everyday people that just want workout escaping there daily life routine,the boxing gym becomes the country club for the average Joe's everyone knows who you are within the community we don't see much of their members profiles but we see their interactions with boxing, man woman child and elderly trained for their own reasons,and that way you can summarize this film.

this is the first time I hear of Frederick Wiseman i don't know if all his documentaries are this way or not,one feels cheated in a way really what you see is someone shooting in the gym nothing more,It may seem like a video seen on you tube, but I believe that the vision of Wiseman is to show the simplicity of things the protagonist is boxing and secondary characters are the people training, everyone trains different some more than others but all are there to learn and understand it
