Pumping Iron

Pumping Iron
a fantastic docu-drama

Pumping Iron on youtube
Pumping Iron on the Wiki Page

I was trying to center in on the scenes where Arnold meets with Lou
two very different sides of the coin

arrogant arnold living the high life... beaches... beautiful women... what appears to be a life of leisure

while lou is shy and humble
no fancy gyms... no personal trainers
just him and his dad with some simple old free weights in a small ny apartment

arnold fears that he may lose to lou
so he visits him and plays with his head
it is interesting this whole sport of weight lifting
this film explains what the sport means to them
the effort to achieve immortality through striking the perfect pose with a massive development of the human body
