The Armstrong Lie
USA, 2013, 124 Minute Running Time
ENDS THURSDAY at the Sie FilmCenter.
Alex Gibney documents the meteoric rise and tragic fall of cycling's most prominent figure, Lance Armstrong. What began as an account of Armstrong's return to cycling three years after retirement ultimately became an incisive look at the pitfalls of ambition and hypocrisy.
" To use a phrase from the film, The Armstrong Lie is a "myth-buster." It's wholly necessary, brilliantly executed, and a complete bummer." - Village Voice
