The Armstrong story is fascinating. That someone could get away with such a huge lie in plain sight is terrifying. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
A quite absorbing but never riveting or revelatory overview of Armstrong’s career and testy personality. Full Review
Bruce Ingram
Chicago Sun-Times
You’d have to start looking into ancient Greek tragedy to top it as a showcase for pure, unadulterated hubris. That’s one of the things that makes The Armstrong Lie, which has more on its mind than the mere debunking of a tarnished hero, so worthwhile. Full Review

It's a fascinating film that points the finger at a charismatic master of deception — as well as our willingness to buy his deceit. Full Review
Chuck Wilson
Village Voice
To use a phrase from the film, The Armstrong Lie is a "myth-buster." It's wholly necessary, brilliantly executed, and a complete bummer. Full Review
