Bigger, Faster, Stronger

Has anyone seen this documentary? If so, what did you think of it? If not, I definitely recommend.
 
I watched it for the second time on sunday on Netflix, really enjoyed it.

    It's really good for putting some issues into perspective. It stands out like a sore thumb in the middle of todays sensationalist, biased media.

    I'm not sure, it was the one in the documentary that kinda deluded himself about becoming famous and did try to end it once before.

    Yes suicide. Such a shame.

    One brother killed himself, the other became a meathead millionaire. Both did drugs.

    Chris bell has another film coming out called Prescription Thugs.

    Really surprised me this doc, thought it'd be a heap of **** but it was throughly entertaining and informative. Gutted for his bro, seemed to have a tortured soul

    Prescription thugs is going to be a must watch for me! Thought it was really interesting how the US portrayed steroids and how they're anti-steroids yet most of their 'heroes' are on gear.
     
    The athlete scandal was very interesting, where one guy was supplying over 2000 athletes with performance enhancement. It spent more time in congress that the iraq war.

    Very open, honest and informative while being entertaining and funny at the same time. I liked it.

    Very sad about what happened later.
