What are people saying?

  • Michael Peer's rating of the film Prescription Thugs

    Nowhere near as impactful nor engaging as the fantastic Bigger, Stronger, Faster, Chris Bell's follow up is well intentioned and extremely relevant in today's world. The film is a continuation from where he left us off with BFS, but most of the charm is missing. You get the point after 45 minutes and the rest of the film is more or less repeating itself, just with new talking heads. Still, an eye-opening subject.
