In Uppercut, the concept of violence as reality check is at the core. Gints Klimanis and his fellow fighters engage in 60-second garage-based warfare as a reminder, to themselves if no one else, that they are more than their work. It’s the pursuit of living life a little deeper, as Klimanis says toward the end of the film. For many of these men, the fights are as much a defining moment as writing code or engineering software.
