Among the Irish Traveller community a feud between three families has been brewing for over a decade. How do they decide to settle it? By stepping to the line for some bare knuckle boxing. There aren’t any rounds. The fights end when one man gives up or is knocked out.
Epic themes of honor, family, and revenge take center stage in this brutal documentary.
Knuckle was a big hit at Sundance and is set for release on DVD on August 29th. Watch the trailer.

In The Colbert Report’s regular feature, “Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger,” Colbert razzed the new razor from Schick, which touts itself as the first scented razor for men. The handle of the razor is scented with “notes of spearmint, citrus and rosemary.” A New York Times article about the release of the razor quotes a Schick exec as saying she hopes that for young users, “the scent provides an additional linkage with this razor that strengthens their bond with it. Scent is so evocative, and as they grow older we want this scent to be kind of another anchor that’s in their brain for this razor.” Addicted to the scent of your razor! Could it happen to you?
AoM reader and budding filmmaker Blake Armstrong and his cinematographer were experimenting with a video test done to look like the old coronet instructional films from the 40s and 50s and decided to pair it with some audio to make a little retro AoM video.

His final installment, Colonel Roosevelt, was recently published. I have read the first two books and highly recommend them. And I can’t wait to read the third. On Thursday night Morris gave an interesting interview about TR on the Daily Show, talking with Stewart about how such a unique man could never be president today. Check it out.
