3.5 stars out of 4 -- You'd have to start looking into ancient Greek tragedy to top it as a showcase for pure, unadulterated hubris.
The tale is fascinating, not just for cycling enthusiasts, but connoisseurs of the human condition. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- A worthy effort but Armstrong remains a tough nut to crack.
Little White Lies
Rating: 2/5 -- This film, if not a whitewash, has a touch of the fanboy about it. Full Review
Sunday Times (UK)
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
3 stars out of 5 -- Gibney's character study of Armstrong is tough and forensic.
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.
