A bare-knuckle documentary that will take you into a world of warring Irish families. It’s a real-life story about two families, who are forced to fight each other with nothing more than bare-knuckle boxing. This story is both funny and touching.
If you’re looking for a good Netflix original documentary to watch this month, ‘Knuckle’ is the perfect choice. It tells the story of an inter-family boxing culture, which developed into an underground sport, among Irish travellers. The film is very well made and the cinematography, colour grading, and typography are first-rate.
The documentary is made by filmmaker Ian Palmer and follows two Irish families who settle their disputes by boxing. It is not a perfect film, but it is a fascinating glimpse into a private culture. The film’s two-hour runtime is just enough to hold your interest.
