Tonally different and more daring than any biopic from recent memory, the comedy-slash-drama-slash-mockumentary I, Tonya takes huge risks and reaps rewards in its retelling of the sordid life and times of one of tabloid televison’s greatest living punchlines: disgraced former figure skater Tonya Harding.
