This movie was terrific. Truly a hidden gem. Chris Bell addresses the idea of what it means to be American (especially an American male) with a takeoff point of steroids and his personal and family experience with steroids and other performance enhancing substances. Bell does a great job analyzing how American's perceive themselves, each other, steroids, drugs, and a host of other topics and does it in a nuanced and masterful way. It does a great job of not answering the questions that we might have but framing them well and presenting all sides in a compelling manner and raising more questions we didn't even know we should have. Extremely informative, well put together, insightful, go see it!

I found this movie to be really scary but also very realistic. Just when I was convinced that, generally, steroids are okay (I am aware of its benefits in the medical field such as stereoids being a solution for muscular dystrophy), my …
