Pro wrestling has returned to the silver screen, or at least the streaming screen. Cassandro, the new biopic of a beloved exótico played by Gael García Bernal, is now on Amazon Prime Video, and we're talking all about it. Does the film provide a deeper understanding of lucha libre and the luchador lifestyle? How does an acclaimed actor like Bernal look in the ring? And does the appearance of WWE's own Bad Bunny add anything to the experience? Join us as we once again do our wrestling-centric Siskel and Ebert impressions.
