Bigger, Stronger, Faster

In sports, winning is everything, and the pressure to succeed can drive some athletes to start taking banned substances. Filmmaker Chris Bell points the camera at his brothers and himself, all users of steroids. By exploring the reasons behind and effects of steroid use within his family, Bell calls into question the win-at-all-cost attitude so prevalent within American society. 2008, 100 minutes

Can get from NetFlix.

DJE: I finally saw this. It is a fine documentary -- well worth watching. Not a simple condemnation but quite even handed.
