Boxing is a sport that accommodates itself to film better than most.
Raging Bull, Rocky, On The Waterfront - a fraction of the great number of films that centre around the trials and tribulations - and occasional highs - of a boxer.
Next year, the incredible Paddy Considine could well add his own notch to this long list - Journeyman is due for release in February.
No stranger to the genre, you may remember Considine from such boxing films as Cinderella Man. However, in this, the third film he has directed, Considine takes on the role of the pugilist.
A look at the 2 minute trailer will highlight that a trait that we usually associate with Considine's solo work; utter desperation and sadness.
Dealing with the fate of a world champion boxer who suffers devastating brain trauma, his reduced state of mind and body begin to take a toll on his marriage and young family.
Anyone who has seen Tyrannosaur will testify to Considine's proclivity for capturing such hopelessness expertly.
Yet, between popping up in Peaky Blinders or featuring in any number of Shane Meadows' work, Paddy Considine is, more often than not, worth paying close attention to.
With this, the likelihood is that Journeyman, for all the despair therein, looks incredibly powerful and scarcely a film that will paper over the cracks that face the purveyors of such a potentially fatal sport.
