Brandon Marshall: Borderline Beast is probably not coming to a theatre near you, unless you happen to be staying in Pat Bowlen's house while he loops the film to vindicate himself.

But it might be kind of an exciting film, with Marshall following in the tradition of lean, hungry protagonists who've spent necessary time away from their primary craft. In prison, say, or in exile. Marshall's story adds the compelling wrinkle of spending his months away from football with Harvard psychiatrists, acquiring a diagnosis and then treating his condition.

More, from the film's synopsis:

During Marshall's treatment at McLean, he learned how to defuse the bomb inside of his head. Now with the tools and a new perspective he's returning to the real world, the NFL, a marriage he admittedly broke, a wife who feels vilified, and must use the skills he's learned to survive, if not thrive.

RAILROADED OUT OF DENVER... STABBED BY HIS WIFE... OVERTHROWN BY CHAD HENNE... Better than another Ryan Gosling movie, anyway.
