Watched the movie Bigger Stronger Faster today. It's a documentary about steroids, that tries to look at both sides of the issue, as well as other "enhancements" people use (from pills to surgery), the dietary supplement industry, the hypocrisy of Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc. It was actually a very even-handed and thoughtful movie, and I've seen people on both sides of the issue (both for and against steroids) recommend the movie. One of the more memorable scenes comes at the end. The director and guy driving the movie (e.g. doing the voice overs, conducting the interviews, etc.), does not use steroids, but his two brothers do. One of his brothers wants to have a second child, and his wife is against his usage of steroids. So the brother agrees to quit using them. However, in a private scene, when the wife is not present, the brother admits that he'll start using steroids again at some point in the future, and implies that he's willing to lie to his wife about it. In essence, he's addicted, perhaps not chemically, but at least psychologically. The drug gives him an edge, and he won't take the chance of losing that edge, even if it will mean possibly losing his family. It was a sad scene to watch, and it was doubly sad because, not long after this film was released, one of the director's brothers dies in a rehab clinic at the age of 37.

I watched The Cardinal last night. Its about a Catholic bishop who is on his way of becoming a cardinal and as the ceremony takes place his mind flashes back to all these various times in his life beginning with his ordination into the priesthood. It is a very good movie. I highly recommend it.

Lucky me. I just found out that another of my friends loves these movies. I'm gonna have at least one companion during my movie marathon.

I have not seen Shoes of the Fisherman but I think I'm going to have to check it out. It looks good and plus I'm a huge Anthony Quinn fan so its one I'm going to watch.
