  • This is one of the best documentaries you'll see this year.

    February 15, 2021 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Like a lot of recent documentaries about the overdue reckoning for sexual predators in positions of power, "Athlete A" is a reminder that the rot is sometimes within the system itself, not just within the criminals it benefits.

  • What's striking about the film's tone is its redemptive warmth. Though the details are chilling, it's as if a cathartic space has been opened for these girls and their families to explain what they went through.

    June 29, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • With a mere 103-minute running time, many viewers may find themselves wanting more.

    June 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • There's a lot here, but "Athlete A" handles its material lithely, moving smoothly between Nassar's survivors, the journalists who broke the story and the big picture of gold medals, Summer Games and national pride.

    June 27, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Above all, though, it makes you wonder about men and power - does it corrupt, or do the corrupt seek it for further gratification of their desires? And why are they so willing to protect each other, however high the toll of misery paid by their victims.
