America’s obsession with attacking Russia from every angle the past few years has risen to unbelievable levels. We’re not saying what’s been unearthed is untrue just got to a level where anything goes wrong Stateside, ‘It’s the Russians fault’. One factor that the Russians couldn’t hide from was the recent doping of their Athletes and is now the topic for Netflix‘s upcoming Documentary Icarus.
Bryan Fogel‘s documentary was one of the winning movies from this Year’s Sundance Film Festival and today we get a chance to look at the movies’ trailer. As he tries to uncover the dirty tactics of doping in sports and a movie that would take him ‘deeper’ and immersed in secretive ways of doping in Russian sports.
Let’s be honest folks, sadly cheating is not solely based on one nation’s sporting aspirations, but cheats from all sports, not just Russians. The revelations tainted one of the greatest sporting events in the world, the Olympics questioning some of the greatest athletes to ever grace the track. It also ruined reputations of those athletes who were genuine and honest too. Winning awards at Sundance and Sundance London, it seems Fogel’s movie is not scared to dive into the ‘conspiracy’ or go to the heart of the matter either.
When Bryan Fogel sets out to uncover the truth about doping in sports, a chance meeting with a Russian scientist transforms his story from a personal experiment into a geopolitical thriller involving dirty urine, unexplained death, and Olympic Gold—exposing the biggest scandal in sports history.
Icarus will be launched globally including the UK and Ireland from 4th August.
