Weight (2016/First Run DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: C Film: C

Andrew Filippone Jr.'s interesting documentary on powerlifting, Weight (2016), lands on DVD thanks to First Run Features. Set in Brooklyn, the film focuses on Paul Steinman, a coach and gym owner, to whom is trying to write a wrong failure he had in the sport in his past (a performance at the 2012 American Open) and his attempts to inspire and help those in his present.

For those, like myself, who didn't quite realize the extent of dedication to the sport, the documentary is an interesting look at it and would definitely be a good watch for those gym rats who practice powerlifting. The filmmaking is pretty strong with decent camerawork and editing, giving the audience a close look at different weight lifting contests and scenes that take place in the gym where preparations take place. Thus, it's worth a look for those interested.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphically enhanced, 1.77:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo surround (Pro Logic) track, the film looks and sounds fine for DVD but could benefit to a Blu-ray update.

Extras include...
