[T]here's an undeniable fascination in the spectacle of Armstrong concealing and confessing with equal self-assurance.
The tale is fascinating, not just for cycling enthusiasts, but connoisseurs of the human condition. Full Review
3 stars out of 5 -- Gibney's character study of Armstrong is tough and forensic.
3 stars out of 4 -- [T]he result is scary, suspenseful and shockingly intense....The provocation never stops.
Rating: C -- Perhaps it would have been better if Gibney had told us something we didn't already know. Full Review
[A] thorough and engrossing investigation that manages to smoothly integrate footage shot for the earlier work into a very different framework.
Los Angeles Times
Rating: 3/5 -- Rigorously researched yet repetitive, it never quite hits the button. Full Review
Alex Gibney surveys the rise and fall of acclaimed and then disgraced American cyclist Lance Armstrong in his documentary THE ARMSTRONG LIE. The director presents the complicated history of the controversial figure, including his troubled father-free childhood, his battle back from testicular cancer, his seven consecutive Tour de France championships, the creation of his Live Strong charity, and his subsequent admission to a blood doping regimen that allowed him to stay at the top of the physically demanding sport for so long. Gibney sits down with numerous reporters who tried for years to expose Armstrong's continuous fibs, and also interviews those who were inside Armstrong's inner circle. THE ARMSTRONG LIE screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
