"The Last Gladiators" 8/10
Academy Award winning director Alex Gibney, director of "Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room", "Taxi to the Dark Side" and "Going Clear" made a documentary about the "goon" era of Hockey, (approx. 1970-2000 in my estimation). It's main focus is the life and career of Montreal Candiens great Chris Nilan though lots of players, coaches and pundits from the era are interviewed.
The documentary is a fascinating look at what happens to men who's job it is to brutalize other people when that job ends. I found my self particularly enjoying it because this was the era of hockey that I grew up watching in Michigan. I distinctly remember every player they speak to in the doc. It's interesting that every problem both physical and emotional that the players have later in life seem to mirror the things you hear soldiers returning from war discussing.
