This is a riveting, insider's view of the unraveling of one of the most extraordinary stories in the history of sports. In 2009 Alex Gibney was hired to make a film about Lance Armstrong's comeback to cycling. The project was initially shelved when the extraordinary doping scandal erupted, but filming of this personal and international media drama continued after Armstrong's confession. The result is a fascinating Shakespearean-like examination of power dynamics in professional sports. Short-listed for an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary!
A layered inquiry into the culture of competitiveness, celebrity, moral relativism and hypocrisy. - Variety
