Watch: Exclusive Clip From Amateur Wrestling Doc 'Fake It So Real'

Robert Greene's "Fake It So Real"
In Robert Greene's "Fake It So Real," the documentarian follows a close-knit group of amateur wrestlers in North Carolina who engage in a series of wild physical competitions under the guise of flamboyant and often highly amusing alter egos. While stylistically quite different from Greene's previous effort, the understated "Kati With an I," his new project similarly focuses on alienated people struggling to reconcile their fantasies with reality. Watch an exclusive clip below.

"Fake It So Real" opens Friday at New York's reRun Gastropub Theater ahead of a DVD release from Factory 25.

    "Handsome" Johnny Crook and I rarely agree when it comes to wrestling,but I can tell you by stepping into the ring with these guys that it doesn't matter to them how big the crowd or how rewarding it is financially,all of these guys bust their asses for 2 reasons,the love of the game and entertaining our great fans.

    Excuse me, but this is PROFESSIONAL wrestling. The guys who compete in the MWF are PROFESSIONALS, some of who work for other Independent Wrestling Promotions.

    And the "exclusive clip" features a guy who was involved in a serious car accident. Maybe he should have checked his brakes before leaving the arena?
