Movies: The Last Gladiators
The Last Gladiators is a documentary I watched yesterday about the enforcers in hockey and more specifically follows the career of Chris Nilan. It`s a tough guy movie complete with lots of footage of on the ice brawls and guys talking about why they do it. The movie also shows the end of Chris`s career when he went from using painkillers to cope with his ailments to full blown drug addiction. It shows that no matter how strong or tough you are addiction can bring you to your knees. There are many powerful lessons in this documentary. Check it out, it`s streaming on netflix now.
