When you discover that your heroes have broken the rules, do you follow the rules, or do you follow your heroes?

BIGGER STRONGER FASTER is the story of director Christopher Bell and his two brothers with a diverse cast including professional athletes, medical experts, US politicians and gym rats.

This is a well-balanced documentary film about performance enhancing drugs and pop culture.

It doesn't feature that many endurance athletes. There's a short chapter about Floyd Landis and his altitude chamber. Lance Armstrong is only briefly mentioned. That's about it. No skinny marathon runners, only sprinters.

Highly recommended (the film, not the juice).
