  5. Nice film, well edited with a very salient message. The use of animation and reconstruction really brought to life Don's narrative, and the sound editing really guided the piece. The Boxer as a project brings to light a very interesting parallel between the very different fields of boxing and filmmaking as positive forces for young people around Britain.
