Every June, 59-year-old Bill Friedman waxes his body, strips down to the smallest bikini shorts imaginable, slathers himself with bronzing spray and then struts his way across a stage where he flexes his impressive muscles and gyrates before a crowd of hundreds. Bill is a competitive bodybuilder; a former world champ in the age 50-60 category. And now he's determined to win his title back. His filmmaker son Bryan is documenting his attempt, and slowly getting to know the father he has never spent any time with.

I'm a competitive bodybuilder and I couldn't stand this video - who bought this? It's just a documentary about a self-centered, cold, empty person who happened to pick the sport and has no personality.

It says nothing about the sport, or bodybuilding, or training, or a diet.

This is a very sad and empty video to watch. To epl, please don't reinvest in another copy - it's meaningless.

Well-filmed, and I like slice-of-life stories. I knew going in that the bodybuilder was the filmmaker's father, but not that watching the film would be somewhat akin to sitting in on someone else's family therapy session. A little uncomfortable.
