About the Movie
Professional strongman Stanless Steel---- "The Strongest Man in the World (at Bending Steel and Metal)"-- is the only man alive who can bend a U.S. penny with his fingers. But the world around Stan--- his aging parents, his alcoholic brother, his beautiful announcer/girlfriend, and even Stan himself-- are not so malleable. And what begins as a loveable portrait of a unique outsider soon becomes a deeply universal, funny, and poignant story about people trying to find reshape their lives through the scraps and dented dreams of another time.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An outsider tale of unforced rawness and lilting poignancy.
Fresh: By the end, you don't entirely understand either of these people, but you come to understand why they need each other.
Fresh: Strongman is a tantalizing example of the kind of documentary I find engrossing: A film about an unusual person that invites us into the mystery of a human life.
Fresh: A warts-and-all documentary from first-time director Zachary Levy that moves in close and stays there.
More than I expected
At first I wasn't sure what to expect out of this film... needless to say, it was epic. Sometimes comic, sometimes tragic.. thought provoking throughout.. gotta watch it again!
Strange, Wonderful and Incredibly Touching
You really find yourself rooting for this throwback strong man that can bend pennies with his hands. I watched it twice.
One of the most unique and magical documentaries of the last few decades. An absolute Tour de Force of emotions. Zach Levy does a great job at bringing this incredible story to life. Glad to see it's finally on iTunes.
