Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: It's a fascinating and unexpectedly profound and melancholy meditation on what we have become as a country and on the misguided obsessions that made us this way.
- Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times, Friday, May 30, 2008
Fresh: It'll shake up your beliefs not just about steroids but about competition, hypocrisy, body obsession and American notions of masculinity.
- David Ansen, Newsweek, Monday, June 9, 2008
Fresh: A matter-of-fact funny and clever in-depth look at steroid use in modern-day America.
- Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Interesting rundown on the steroid debate. This has basically no relevance to my life, so I won't get all judgy. I will, however, give it an entire star for the part where they show how you can sell capsules full of flour to people paying $60 a bottle to get big and strong, based on before and after pics shot on the same day.

A good muscled look at the taboo of steroid use and the biggorexic pressures on modern American men. Film-maker is in an ideal situation for doing this project, with two brothers who have used steroids and the film-maker himself having only dabbled with them once and his whole life struggled with the decision of whether or not to plunge in. I think this is just as revealing about widespread cultural hypocrisy as Grass, The Union, Bowling for Columbine, and the works of The Yes Men.
