CONOR McGREGOR: NOTORIOUS (M)
This flashy sports doco gets you up close and impersonal with mixed martial arts superstar Conor McGregor. As can often be the case when the subject of a doco is also a producer, the film is very selective with what it chooses to reveal and hide. The controversial Irish fighter’s improbable rise from lowly plumber’s apprentice to highflying UFC champ is definitely a story worth telling, and when the filmmakers stick to the key facts and crucial fights, it makes for riveting viewing. However, an unseemly proportion of running time is given over to feeding McGregor’s monstrous ego. The man’s incessant need to remind everyone of his ability to crush opponents and make the big bucks is tiresome beyond belief.
