    The Price of Gold

    ★★★½

    Watched this after I, Tonya to see how well it meshed with the movie, and it was remarkably similar. 30 for 30 films are great as always, but this really nails a crazy story and gets at all the angles. I enjoyed it and it made me like I, Tonya and the fictional version of it better as well.

    ★★★★

    Having missed most of this when it was news in the 90s, it was interesting to revisit and I came at the story from a clear place. Really funny and interesting and poignant way to tell a compelling story. Loved how they preserved the unreliable narrator angles by showing each person told a slightly different story.

    After the movie, I watched the ESPN 30 for 30 about this, and it was remarkably similar and true to the story told in the film.

    ★★½

    So-so funny. Took a long lead time to get there, maybe 15min too long. Ultimate technical "saves the day" ending was implausible.
