Russian Doping Scandal Streams Through Netflix’s Veins in ‘Icarus’ Trailer

From Netflix, here’s the first trailer for Icarus, a documentary about the danger of flying too close to the sun on wings made enormously muscular through steroids. Winner of Sundance’s first-ever Orwell Award for uncovering the truth, the film follows director Bryan Fogel as he digs deep into Russia’s Olympic doping scandal. In other words, it’s not even close to being the Russian investigation we’re most concerned about. But it should be interesting, nonetheless.

Icarus hits Netflix August 4.
