Muhammad ALI - Through the Eyes of the World (2001)
Muhammad Ali’s grace, charisma, and remarkable bravado shine through in this affectionate look at his life and career. Muhammad Ali († 03 Jun 2016): Through the Eyes of the World takes a fairly straightforward documentary approach, chronicling Ali’s life and career through film footage and interviews with journalists, loved ones, and a few bizarre commentators, like Scottish comedian Billy Connolly. The film does an excellent job of conveying both Ali’s genuine importance as a historical figure and his incredible personal magnetism. Though the documentary doesn’t shy away from his faults, Ali is simply impossible to dislike. Most importantly, the film’s commentary and carefully selected fight footage make it clear even to those who don’t follow the sport what a remarkable boxer Ali was. At one point, Lennox Lewis refers to the “sweet science” of not getting hit, and watching Ali dodge a barrage of punches, we understand exactly what he means. Muhammad Ali: Through the Eyes of the World doesn’t pack quite the dramatic wallop of When We Were Kings, but it is a compelling look at one of history’s greatest athletes.

Superbe documentaire sur la vie de Muhammad ALI. Au travers, de témoignages de nombreuses personnes médiatiques ou non (une de ses femmes, une de ses filles, Tom Jones, James Earl Jones, son entraîneur, ses anciens adversaires, Billy Cristal, Rod Steiger, Richard Harris …) on suit la naissance de celui qui va devenir le plus grand boxeur du monde. De Cassius Clay à Muhammad Ali, rien ou presque ne nous est caché, les hauts et les bas, les combats victorieux à la loyale et ceux, même si c’est pas trop développé, ou la « ruse » à donnée un petit coup de main. Ses relations avec les femmes, sa conversion et son adhésion à une cause qu’il ne semble pas trop comprendre, ses prises de position courageuse sur la guerre du Vietnam et ce que cela va lui coûter (son titre, le droit de boxer)…
