"A generation of Americans grew up worshipping self-styled hero Evel Knievel - watching him every Saturday on Wide World of Sports and buying his ideal toys. For producer/subject Johnny Knoxville and so many others, he was the ultimate antidote to the disenchantment of the 70's. But few know the incredible and often complex aspects of his epic life, which, like his jumps, was sometimes glorious and sometimes disastrous. With an entire genre of sports ascending from his daring inventiveness, now is the time to look at this extreme man and his complicated legacy. Academy award winning director Daniel Junge delivers thrills and spills, whild also reflecting on what our heroes represent in ourselves." --Container.
