I was completely engaged with this interview from start to end - the blog account as well. In many years of working with and knowing people living on the edge, it sounds as though Mike Tyson's reached a quiet sobriety in self-appraisal. He said at one point that he's touched the dark side of himself - that he knows it presence, but he doesn't want to go and live back there again, that he's just grateful - and he's happy to say thank you. He'd like to say he was humble, but later comments that if he had to say it, then he wouldn't be humble at all. His old friends on the 'front' who told him to "go back up there and make us proud", well, I hope they are. I wish him all the best with his pigeons and his life, his wife, his child. Thanks for posting this arresting piece of film.
