The obsession of men to find 'happiness'
17 October 2015 | by laraphaSee all my reviews

This documentary clearly shows how poor is our search (man concerned) of an ideal man (and love). A LOT of beautiful men, with obsession for the perfect body, always bringing to frustration, aims to belonging to the triple A group, defined here to the most beautiful body, regarded as the biggest arms, biggest pectorals, biggest tights, which will make them getting the maximum opportunities of sex without utter meaning. The main complain of the subjects is exactly this. You may belong to the 'best' group, avoiding the ones that can't get there, but where exactly do you want to get? The film avoids thorny themes, as to what means getting old in a society that abominates the older and just thinks of the moment. There really happens to find beautiful bodies trough the film, and the sole meaning is to show the biggest hips, even with the indiscriminate use of steroids (what is somehow masked along the film) but what's next? They aren't looking for an answer.
