In 2015, documentary director Bryan Fogel, in the midst of his own expose on performance enhancing drugs in amateur cycling found himself being brought into a much bigger story when he befriends the head of the Russian lab responsible for drug testing. The result of this would make international news and the Oscar-winning documentary Icarus. Part expose on state sponsored doping, part human drama as the duo try to navigate a bureaucratic labyrinth to both protect the story and the source. But does this doc hit the mark? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris find out.
