    I, Tonya is hands-down one of the year’s most entertaining movies. Craig Gillespie damn near hits it out of the park, with the biggest fault stemming from a temperamental start to its third act. It’s highly creative, funny, enlightening, well paced with the exception of the previously mentioned speed-bump, and complimented nicely by powerhouse performances by Margot Robbie and Allison Janney.

    Expect noms for best actress, supporting actress, director, editing , and maybe even best picture.

    In conclusion: go see I, Tonya immediately.

    While all biopics can't take that road, I really liked I, Tonya pulling a Big Short with its material, recreating interviews, having the characters turn to camera, and fully admitting this pack of self-serving liars made contradicting statements. It's something that works well when the actual events are outrageous and ridiculous. And Tonya Harding's story is that. While the film makes her sympathetic to a point - one can appreciate the unfairness of her situation - it doesn't so much redeem Harding as indict the audience for enjoying this crazy page of sports history when it happened. Regardless of athletic ability, she never catches a break and finds herself in abusive relationships even with strangers, but her reaction (and that of the stupid criminals in her entourage) deserves no flowers. The film makes a fair few points besides, about the skating world, organized sports, and the media. Engrossing, wryly funny, but sad too. 3 years ago

    Man I thought the interview with the bodyguard was there just for comedic purposes.
