All Critics (15)

John Erskine's absorbing documentary The Ice King explores Curry's short but hectic life using archive footage and interviews. His grace on the ice still makes one gasp.

James Erskine's excellent documentary suggests that, at the height of his career, Curry's gayness was somewhere between a rumour and an open secret.

March 2, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Ice King is a focused, elegantly made documentary, and at a relatively brisk 88 minutes, none of Curry's achievements (or defeats) ever feel like they're being skated over.

The Ice King is a deftly crafted portrait of a melancholy pioneer.

An evocative and lovingly assembled documentary.

February 25, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There are moments of vagueness when you wish more effort had been made on the nuts-and-bolts stuff. Still, we get a strong sense of Curry's personality -- a sensitive perfectionist -- and there is ample footage of his great routines.
