As recorded in the great wealth of documentary footage Ofteringer has assembled, the cheekbones slowly collapse and the blue eyes become watery, their owner becoming more and more dependent on hard drugs and fast living.
August 2, 2013
With extraordinary technique, Ofteringer paints a moody, melancholy picture of a legend who decayed into the ghost of herself.

That voyeuristic fascination with doomed glamour is one of the guilty pleasures of Susanne Ofteringer's utterly haunting documentary film, Nico Icon.

Nico Icon is a powerful, often disturbing portrayal of a woman haunted by her elevation to icon status for little more than her physical attributes.

The movie has no moral or message, does not attempt to rehabilitate Nico as an anti-heroine, and finds mostly emptiness and sadness in her life. I have a feeling Nico would have enjoyed it.

Nico Icon tells us more than we ever knew about this pop star yet manages to leave the mysterious reflecting pool that will forever be Nico intact.

Catching a look at what took a gorgeous kid, full of life, into a rare freak show is certainly worth a look.

Nico-Icon is more than the investigation of a doomed celebrity: It's also a mirror reflecting her friends, her audience and pop culture.

Nico, the beautiful heroin-addicted, one-time model and actress turned pop singer, is a strange subject for a documentary. Director Susanne Ofteringer took the strangeness and ran with it.

Though Nico Icon is replete with fascinating tidbits about the model-turned- singer's opinions and lovers, it does little to bring us understanding of the real person.

This picture is a mess. It never presents a compelling case of why we should care about Nico.
