I, Tonya – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
From voice over, talking to camera and some stylish photography and editing I, Tonya is is one of the most Scorsese films NOT directed by Scorsese. This isn’t a dig.  It works.  God it works.  The combination of great directing, a fascination story and an amazing central performance by Margot Robbie, I Tonya is very much deserving the praise and awards that’s been heaped on it to date.  For a dark story the film is, at times, fun and funny and the tone works well.  In short I, Tonya  adds to what is become a very interesting award season.

Best Bit: Robbie is sublime

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Cinema

If You Liked this Try: Goodfellas, The Wolf Of Wall Street, Lady Bird
