The Levi effect is a fairly balanced portrayal of Levi Lepheimer. Though the juxtaposition of some of the Tour de France races with what we know now about the performance enhancing drug use by the team is rather ironic and to use the favorite adjective in the movie surreal. It gives good insight into cycling and also the Gran Fondo and the community of Santa Rosa... watch out for a population boom in that town. Nice to see time given to the folks that helped Levi succeed..the dentist, the mechanic etc...Definitely worth seeing if you are even remotely interested in cycling....the panel discussion at the end is absolutely dull except for Tom Danielson...he is a riot...too bad they did not have Horner...also....
Notably absent is much refernce to Lance and also you could tell it is still very difficult to discuss and talk about the use of performance enhancing drugs.
