Bigger, Faster, Stronger
I just finished watching Bigger, Faster, Stronger. It's a good documentary on steroid use. On the one hand, it suggests that steroids aren't nearly as dangerous as they're made out to be. (Something that could be said about most illegal drugs.) At the same time, it suggests that steroids are part of a much larger American problem of wanting to win at all costs. One part of the film that could be a documentary in itself is its short look at the supplement industry which, for the most part, sells the modern version of snake oil.
