I, Tonya

I, Tonya ★★★★★

It's bawdy, it's brash and I know it's not everybody's cup of tea, but man I love this movie. There is something about a fully grown redneck skimming like a graceful pit-bull across a frozen lake that gives me goosebumps.

Oh, and Margot Robbie is brilliant.
And Allison Janney is at her loopy-loo, psycho maniacal best too.

"All those people who said I couldn't make it. Well fuck you! I proved everyone wrong"
- Tonya Harding

This is my fourth or fifth viewing of this and still... that moment when Tonya lands the triple for the first time. It's just spectacularly good cinema. The camerawork, sound, lighting, technical everything is just so bloody marvelous, it always seems to bring a tear to my eye.

I'm not gonna apologize or hide it any more. I'm coming out.
Tonya Harding, you get a 5/5 from me.
Perfect.
Gold medal.
