Bigger, Stronger, Faster

In a culture where the word ‘steroids’ has entered everyday vocabulary, Christopher Bell’s insightful documentary tries to examine what motivates athletes to take such -often dangerous- performance enhancing drugs to lay the blame, not on multi-nationals or the sports industry, but on a win-at-all-costs culture that likes to think of itself in the superlative. From the producers of Bowling for Columbine and Farenheit 9/11, Bigger, Stronger, Faster is a fascinating documentary about the side effects of being an American. Special Mention at Karlovy Vary.
