Story


In 2009, Alex Gibney was hired to make a film about Lance Armstrong's comeback to cycling. The project was shelved when the doping scandal erupted, and re-opened after Armstrong's confession. The Armstrong Lie picks up in 2013 and presents a riveting, insider's view of the unraveling of one of the most extraordinary stories in the history of sports. As Lance Armstrong says himself, "I didn't live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one."

“..the movie rambles at two-plus hours, but the provocation never stops..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..not all of these questions are answered, of course. Any one of them could be the subject of a long dissertation..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..is he only telling the truth now because every other avenue has been exhausted? That's certainly the impression you get here..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
