An aspiring bodybuilder who aspires to emulate his idol by appearing on magazine covers is Killian Maddox (Majors). While caring for his ill grandfather, working at the neighbourhood grocery store, attending court-ordered therapy sessions, and taking care of his grandfather, William Lattimore (Harrison Page), Killian struggles to balance his bodybuilding training and food intake. Killian struggles with controlling his temper and constantly feels the pressure to be the ideal bodybuilder. He believes that if he can eventually succeed in the cutthroat world of bodybuilding, then everyone will know who he is and what his goals are.

The documentary Magazine Dreams examines the dangers of physical perfection and masculinity, the culture of bodybuilding, and the causes of violence among men, including loneliness. It also addresses people who are obsessed with their popularity because Killian aspires to the glory, the spotlight, and the attention that come with being a well-known bodybuilder. It can be really uncomfortable to see, and it is by no means an easy movie. The movie is tremendously intense and never lets up, frequently to the point of repetition, leaving Killian to repeatedly perform the same actions with no significant payoff until the very end.

Numerous times in Bynum's writing show Killian expressing regret or being on the verge of civility that can suddenly escalate to violence. The movie doesn't always profit from this kind of repetition, and it's a difficult line to tread. In light of this, Magazine Dreams might be significantly condensed without sacrificing any of its momentum. The movie's last act is a never-ending cycle of Killian coming dangerously close to acting violently before pulling back. The audience is undoubtedly anxious to see what severe action he would take. Magazine Dreams suffers as a result of this strategy because it goes on for too long.

Magazine Dreams is still worthwhile to see, though. Majors delivers a faultless performance; he is fully devoted to this role and is able to delve into Killian's introspection. The movie itself can be somewhat unnerving and intimidating since it takes viewers to awkward areas in order to convey its point. Even though that point isn't as well-developed as it may be, the movie manages to keep viewers interested the entire time.
