If you forgot to watch Tales of Masked Men on PBS, where it led off the season for the excellent series Voces on PBS, you’re in luck: TOMM is now available on DVD.

The film, which goes deep behind the scenes of the fascinating world of lucha libre, has gotten superlative reviews not only from fans of the phenomenon, but from newbies as well.  In fact anyone who appreciates a well-made documentary is likely to get hooked on Tales.
