Pumping Iron, a documentary chronicling the lives of world champion bodybuilders and one future movie star’s attempt to win Mr. Universe for the sixth time, marked Arnold Schwarzenegger’s acting debut.
This somewhat true, partially fictional movie explores what many people view as the heyday of bodybuilding in the 1970s. It features two significant contests: Mr. Universe, which is open to amateur competitors, and Mr. Olympia, which is open to professionals. In the former, Mike Katz and Ken Waller are profiled; in the latter, Lou Ferrigno, Franco Columbu, and Arnold Schwarzenegger the leading competitors.
Highly talks about the mindset and subtle strategy of the champion himself.
The Last Waltz
Martin Scorsese took the Band’s farewell concert, a private, bittersweet affair held in San Francisco, and transformed it into myth by using technical wizardry. In many ways, the musicians resemble dejected characters in a powerful Scorsese film like Taxi Driver.
This compelling Romanian documentary would have triumphed at the Oscars against Netflix’s adorable The Octopus Teacher in an ideal world. However, this exposé of state-sponsored corruption most likely wouldn’t exist in a just world. Unexpectedly, a group of sports journalists discovers a medical scandal that resulted in the senseless deaths of hundreds of Colectiv nightclub victims in Bucharest in 2015. They pull on a thread that leads to the highest levels of government, as in all excellent conspiracy thrillers. This shocking thriller with Spotlight-like elements is a regional tale with regrettably global significance.
Over the course of eight years, Hoop Dreams follows William Gates and Arthur Agee, two Chicago lads who are selected from their inner-city high schools to enroll in one of the most prestigious basketball programs. The movie caused a stir when it wasn’t nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary; its only nomination was for Best Film Editing.
In an incredible documentary that makes extensive use of previously unreleased NASA video, Todd Douglas Miller’s jaw-dropping space voyage straps viewers to the side of the roaring Apollo 11 rocket as it races into and beyond the Earth’s atmosphere. Miller’s thrilling recreation of the mission, which successfully landed two Americans on the Moon’s surface before removing them again to win that leg of the space race against the Soviet Union, is anything but triumphalist. Instead, it is filled with a lot of quiet professionalism, teamwork, and fearless men in helmets. You regret not pursuing your boyhood dream of being an astronaut once it enters space and the 70mm footage starts to work its magic.
