I saw this maybe a year ago and haven't been able to stop thinking about it. I thought it was fascinating, though a bit uncomfortable at the start of the film given that Janae has basically two competing forms of dysphoria (she wants to be extremely large and muscular as a man, and to be pretty and not gawked at as a woman. But female bodybuilding is still not widely accepted and female bodybuilders get gawked at).
