The Armstrong Lie

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 Armstrong Lie torrent reviews

Jim H (us) wrote: A small-town Ontario sheriff in a Mennonite community must confront the demons of his past when his ex-lover's boyfriend is the prime suspect of a murder.Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal sums up this film perfectly: the film "moves so deliberately, with such confident authority, that every small event takes on cumulative significance." Yes, but the slowness, or in Morgenstern's words, "deliberateness," of the film weighs on its subject. I think it's easy to know that the film knows where it's going, but that doesn't mean that we always do. And the title cards between the film's chapters are wholly unnecessary and do little to advance the plot or clarify the themes.Peter Stormare is very good, creating a strong character out of subtle moments, and the rest of the cast rides on his coattails.Overall, this is a good film, but it's pace can easily drag on the impatient viewer.

Ben H (jp) wrote: absolutely shocking - similar to 'Shrooms' with just as bad an ending. A bunch of shoddy amateur actors with people walking off and dying with a very predictable turn of events. A great idea for a thriller/horror, but the angle they took half way through with the staged events, and mass killing enemy was a bit far-fetched and over the top. A bargain bin dvd I expect, maybe worth a watch for a laugh, but wouldn't waste much money on it.

Vera Fogwill se saco un peliculon junto con Martn De Salvo en esta obra prima llena de frescura, ideas nuevas y atrevimiento.La pelicula va sobre las relaciones madre-hija y de como a traves de las generaciones nos van cambiando las cosas, ningun tema nuevo pero enfocados desde una perspectiva sublime.Muy bien por Vera, la hija del reconocido escritor Fogwill, quien debio pasarla muy duro despues de todo el rollo de la estafa en Francia donde casi le roban su pelicula. Mas de dos anios para recuperarla y una denuncia al final de los creditos indicando quienes fueron los malpa.. que le robaron mas de 150 mil euros que habia ganado para completar esta esplendorosa pelicula.Hay que verla.

I saw this movie a couple of times and knew what this was all about: a knight and his servant time travel forwards from medieval-era France to 21st century America when they drink a magic potion. This results in a clash of two different time periods when the knight and servant face more than one unfamiliarity such as modern appliances. The wizard then joins in, and helps the two return to their time of origin. I give four stars to this movie featuring the clash of time periods!

Joseph S (fr) wrote: The "gay Thelma and Louise" this early New Queer Cinema outing was tagged as. Araki refers to it in the opening credits as an "irresponsible" movie. Two men both HIV positive take off across the country on a whirlwind romance after the murder of a policeman. The acting is on par with the stilted John Water's campy affectation, that occasionally becomes becomes heavy(buy non the less surprising) stabs at melodrama. More dramatic than the teenage apocalypse trilogy, but also much less fun and funny. The end is devastating though, and leaves us feeling and reeling(a first time in the film) that scene captures everything about Araki and "The Living End" into one moment,i combining sex, violence, irony, rage, and sorrow. That scene is better than the film itself really.Though "historically" and "culturally" this along with Mysterious Skin (a better film) are Araki's most meaningful movies,"The Living End" is also my least favorite of his. None of the rich colors and set design that would define his later work, is present here, instead it's all sound, fury, which contrary to popular belief does sometimes signify, it's just that in 2010, it's says allot less than it did in 1992. A valiant reaction against attempts to humanize AIDS carriers into eternal victims, by allowing them to become fantastical outlaws (doomed by fate) but outside of this marginal (though valid) position, there isn't much more to enjoy.

Caroline K (gb) wrote: An interesting and incredibly entertaining, if sometimes hard to follow, movie. Released in two parts and four hours long total, Dr. Mabuse is one of the crown jewels of silent cinema. Wonderful special effects for the time (And still wonderful now), a more interesting plot than what I've seen in movies nowadays, and with wonderful actors (Not to mention the fact hat Klein-Rogge is utterly brilliant). Very highly recommended.
