Andre the Giant (2018)

Andre the Giant (2018): directed by Jason Hehir: André Roussimoff was the man most of us knew as Andre the Giant. He was a wonder. This documentary does a nice job of depicting The Man in Full, though the section on the WWE/WWF's elevation of Hulk Hogan to Number One Wrestler is a sidebar that takes up too much of the film. 

The untreated acromegaly that made André Roussimoff into a giant also killed him at the age of 46. This makes me sad. The tales of André's legendary capacity for alcohol are welcome, but I'd still like to know more about the man and not the nickname. Recommended.
