Watch the “Fact or Fiction: The Life and Times of a Ping Pong Hustler” The Documentary Trailer

Even though I could live the rest of my life laying on my bed and watching documentaries, I know it’s not a gentleman thing to do. But every once in a while, a new film comes out that looks so interesting, so unique, so ridiculous, that I can’t help but want to put on my comfy clothes, pop some popcorn and watch it.

Fact or Fiction: The Life and Times of a Ping Pong Hustler is just that. It’s a film that follows Marty Reisman, a former international table tennis champion-turned-money player, who is a complex mix of childlike excitement, eccentric narcissism, and constant charm. Shot over three years, the film’s observational style, combined with rare archival footage and interviews with key New York and London society characters such as Booker Prize winner Howard Jacobson and eminent psychotherapist George Weinberg, work to tell the story of one of America’s greatest and most unconventional sports stars at a critical juncture in his life. Fact or Fiction: The Life and Times of a Ping Pong Hustler is available on iTunes.
