Icarus – A Quick Capsule Review

Icarus – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Icarus is a powerful look at corruption at the highest level in international sports that implicates governments, scientists and world leaders in it’s path yet starts as a much simpler intimate story about a man and a bike race.   The narrative, direction and editing are first class and Icarus’ impact is still being felt today in the 2018 Winter Olympics and beyond.  Essential viewing.
