Dir. Alex Gibney, 2013, USA, 124 mins
Lance Armstrong, Reed Albergotti, Betsy Andreu
In 2009 Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) 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. This film picks up in 2013 and presents a riveting, insider’s view of the unravelling of one of the most extraordinary stories in the history of sports. As Lance Armstrong himself says: “I didn’t live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one.”
