Very interesting documentary

By rogerpollex
I thought this was a very good documentary. I recommend going to see it. It gives us the somewhat "inside" scoop on what on in Lance's life....


By chesbeau
There is some similarity between this documentary and Gibney's "Enron: the Smartest Guys In the Room." There is a lot to be said for this piece being "overlong" as Armstrong is a complex man, a...

Interesting, fascinating at times, but not much new and overlong

More like a coda on the whole affair than a revelation. As with the JFK assassination, there's not much left to say. All you can do is recap cohesively, add new interviews and supply additional...

Great Movie

By robdavis259
This movie was very well made and informative. In a time when everyone was doping I feel by doping as well the playing field was leveled I know it's wrong and illegal but Lance was not the only one...

Defiitely worth it

By matthewsilvey
If you are a cycling fan, this movie will shed light on the last 20 years of the sport. Excellent filmmaking in this 2 hour expose. Not the Oprah "fluff piece"....
