    GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling

    ★★★

    A decent look at a group of women who managed to become a phenomenon for a few years back when women's wrestling was such a crazy idea. Having seen the wonderful Netflix original series, it was nice to see the real deal wrestlers from back in the day although it never really manages to get too deep or introspective.

In a way, it feels very soothing thanks to the pacing and the tone despite the very serious tone. Not my favorite of Anderson's movies but still worth seeing.
