I'd urge all wrestling fans to check out Lipstick and Dynamite, a documentary on old school female wrestling. I watched it a couple years back, and found the women to just be amazing. I wanted to embed to the trailer, but it's chock full of pronouncements about "equality" and "breaking barriers." That's all cool. But tell me a fucking story. It's like the people who cut the trailer didn't trust the film so they inserted all this activist-speak. Which is too bad. Because it's wonderful. A couple clips below and after the jump.
