      Kenneth Turan Los Angeles Times One reason "Wrestle" is so effective is that director Herbert and cinematographer Sinisa Kukic made the decision to move to Huntsville for the duration of the shoot. Feb 28, 2019 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times Profiling four members of an underdog high-school wrestling team in Huntsville, Alabama, "Wrestle" constructs an empathetic portrait of a mat that's anything but level. Feb 21, 2019 Full Review Chuck Bowen Slant Magazine The documentary shines a piercing light on the sorts of people that our governments would too often rather forget. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 20, 2019 Full Review Charles Solomon FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) This is a very moving film... You really become invested in these characters. Sep 20, 2019 Full Review Mark Jackson Epoch Times A thoroughly engrossing tale of one young coach's attempt to grow boys into men via the discipline of competition grappling, and a blistering depiction of failing public high schools in America. Rated: 4/5 Mar 11, 2019 Full Review Robert Denerstein Denerstein Unleashed Will these young men conquer in life as they sometimes do on the mat? We're not entirely sure, but we grow to like these kids and wish them well. That's a reflection of the involvement created by a good documentary. Mar 7, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member The Best Wrestling documentaries that I’ve seen. It’s very heart-touching,compelling,and inspiring to see how the four teens deal with their life on the mat and off the mat. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/22/19 Full Review Audience Member An extraordinary film that is both deeply nuanced and incredibly emotional. I'm definitely not a wrestling person, but I loved "Wrestle" -- more that the sport, it's about how we grow/ face adversity. SEE IT! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member This is an amazing and heartfelt film which draws us into the lives and struggles of four young men on a high school wrestling team in Huntsville, Alabama.
