LGM Film Club, Part 298: Pumping Iron


Somehow, I had never seen Pumping Iron. So I did. This is such a well-known film that I don’t think we need an explainer. I will say two things. First, the hardest thing about watching this film is that I find these ridiculous bodies physically repulsive, to the point of almost turning my stomach. Second, I know the film is basically about Arnold Schwarzenegger, but he’s also so obviously much smarter than everyone else around him. The way he dominates the mind of poor Lou Ferrigno, just insulting him to his face and around his family, dang. And it’s unclear if Lou even understands this. Jesus. He was a dick. But hey, it’s competition and he’s the GOAT in that, what are you going to say.
