"Hitman Hart: Wrestling With Shadows"

"In this feature-length documentary, director Paul Jay was given unprecedented access to the world of Bret Hart and pro wrestling as his camera followed Bret "the Hitman" Hart for one year. Going behind the tightly guarded walls of wrestling's spectacle and theatre, the film explores the meaning of today's wrestling morality plays. As fantasy crosses into real life, the true story of Bret Hart's struggle with Vince McMahon, the legendary owner of the WWF, is revealed. Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows climaxes with the tale of the biggest double-cross in pro wrestling. "

This is a great documentary and I'm not just saying that because Bret Hart is my favourite wrestler of all-time.  At that time in wrestling you never got to see much of the real life backstage goings on.  It's something great to see.  Nowadays seeing what's going on backstage is something we don't think about because of the social networks and whatnot.  I highly recommend it regardless if you are a professional wrestling fan or not.
