Movie Info

Jason Conti, better known to his friends and admirers as Crazy Legs Conti, is a man who is driven to compete in his favorite sport. However, rather than baseball, soccer, or hockey, Conti dreams of becoming a champion in the strange world of competitive eating, in which folks with a talent for speed-eating square off to determine who can down the most food in the least amount of time. Supporting himself as a window washer, art-class model, and sperm donor while he chases his ambition of becoming a professional eater, the philosophically inclined Conti attempts to focus both his mind and body (despite his ability to eat 14-dozen oysters in ten minutes, Conti maintains a healthy weight) as he hones his talent for downing hot dogs, popcorn, and oysters, hoping to some day match the greatness of Takeru Kobayashi, a slim Japanese gentleman capable of putting away 53 hot dogs (with buns) in 12 minutes. (As Conti puts it, "To compare Kobayashi to Michael Jordan or Tiger Woods is to slight Kobayashi.") Crazy Legs Conti: Zen and the Art of Competitive Eating is a documentary which offers an insider's look at the unusual world of gastronomy as sport, and Conti's good-natured determination to scale its heights.

Very interesting look at the world of competitive eating. Too short however. Would loved to have seen more in-depth look at the lives of the others as well.
