Official Trailer for Bare-Knuckle Fighting Documentary 'Knuckle' Hits
"We will fight because we are men!" Are you ready for this?! Yahoo (via SlashFilm) recently debuted the official trailer for a documentary called Knuckle, directed by Ian Palmer, about an epic 12-year journey into the brutal and secretive world of Irish Traveler bare-knuckle fighting. This could honestly be described as the real-life, brutal, bloody version of Snatch, which they even play up somewhat in this trailer. Its been receiving some solid praise already, so give it a shot, as long as you can handle violence. This is also the film, and the guy, that Tim League is fighting at Fantastic Fest later this week in a live boxing match - he's crazy!
Watch the official trailer for Ian Palmer's documentary Knuckle, debuted on Yahoo:
Knuckle is an epic 12-year journey into the brutal and secretive world of Irish Traveler bare-knuckle fighting. The film gives a rare inside look at the generations-long feud between Irish Traveller clans headed by James Quinn McDonagh and Paddy "The Lurcher" Joyce. Twelve Years. Three Clans. One War.
Knuckle is directed by first-time filmmaker Ian Palmer. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year, and is also playing at Fantastic Fest in Austin this month. The film will be getting a limited release starting December 2nd from ARC Entertainment, though I think it might be available on VOD now. For more info, visit the official website or Facebook page. And check it out if you're going to Fantastic Fest, too!
