Critic Reviews for The Ice King

All Critics (17)

With its attention to family and changing attitudes both to gender and sexuality... this was social history of the best, by which I mean the slyest, kind.

An unusually moving documentary about a remarkable man.

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.

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

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.

March 1, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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