Director and amateur cyclist Bryan Fogel set out to investigate antidoping controls by rigorously doping himself. His Oscar-nominated film, which starts by following Fogel's daily testosterone regimen, turns into an engrossing exposé of how Russia cheated at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Last month the International Olympic Committee decided to allow 169 Russian athletes to compete at PyeongChang, to Fogel's dismay. "What message are you sending to clean athletes?" he says. "And to all the other countries? I think that it greatly cheapens the Games. To kids believing in the ideal of clean sport, the Olympics are saying it's O.K. to cheat."
