IRONMIND – The Movie

I’m raising money for Addaction, one of the UK’s leading mental health, drug and alcohol charities.

They work with adults and young people, in community settings, in prisons, in residential rehab and through outreach. In 2017 they supported over 140,000 people.

Please donate anything you can. Whether it’s 10, 20, 50 or even a 100 or 1000:

Amazing story, thanks for sharing Brian! I am very thankful for everything you are doing to help people around the globe! I hope you helped John Joseph with his problems from his childhood, he also need help!

Brian, I have been following London real for 6-7 years, and I loved the work you did but I never really liked you as a person. Now I understand who you are, people will like you much more after this because you finally showed yourself to us. It must have taken so much courage to admit these things in public, it is stupid to say “Im proud of you” to someone you never met, but Im proud of you man, thank you for this movie, it really moved me. It is a piece of art.

Was into this story until the part when you left your wife home. Not just left her home but politely told her she could not go. Broke her heart on camera? Brilliant! After that it was hard to take you serious. So now she can watch you having this once in a lifetime experience with your friends from the comfort of her own couch. How thoughtful Brian. FYI, the real marathon is Marriage. Go buy your wife some flowers.

this movie from a panoramic perspective advertises emotional transparency as an allegedly “must” of the token fall of the old world order through the fake manipulative principle of “no pain no gain” that eternalizes the dominant divide & conquer -competitive- tactic of the heartless monstrous & vulturous rulers of this world where critical thinking is under constant attack declaring that the middle human has to suffer to earn success? I deny to play the submissive game of the inhumane establishment of course in a certain way as denial, in general, reflects to ordinary eyes usually no trust & not honor… Read more »

Dear Mr. Ross, I have recently finish this movie; I ask myself if this movie is worth watching it. So I did and there one word I would describe the quality of whole movie. Outstanding is the word what I’m looking at. The whole movie turn out more than of I’ve expected. You and other successful people have taught me many things. You were in a tough situation in the past. However, You decided that enough is enough and rise to the top. I ask myself this, what is truly like being on top of the success. For me, I… Read more »

I enjoyed this. I initially nearly didn’t watch, as I caught a clip of you saying you’d interviewed the antisemitic Yates. But this film was worth the watch. Great job.

Very good work Brian, not only because you faced your demons, but because you’re an example for many others that fears to do what you have done. Great respect for men like you and always remember that money is energy and is essential to anyone that wants to change and/or influence the environment that surround him/her. It Doesn’t matter if many use it for influence the people in a bad way, there are many others that use it to spread up the consciousness and you’re one of those. Good job man.

I really enjoyed the movie but most importantly I was really inspired by your courage to be that vulnerable and that you decided to present that to the public Brian. Thank you for sharing. It is truly inspiring. That really is one of the things I really love about London Real, the first person experience and honesty.

Much love from Berlin
