Alex Gibney surveys the rise and fall of acclaimed and then disgraced American cyclist Lance Armstrong in his documentary The Armstrong Lie. The director presents the complicated history of the controversial figure, including his troubled father-free childhood, his battle back from testicular cancer, his seven consecutive Tour de France championships, the creation of his Live Strong charity, and his subsequent admission to a blood doping regimen that allowed him to stay at the top of the physically demanding sport for so long. Gibney sits down with numerous reporters who tried for years to expose Armstrong's continuous fibs, and also interviews those who were inside Armstrong's inner circle. The Armstrong Lie screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

Excellent Documentary. If you like biking like I do it was nice to finally her most of the truth. I am still undecided if Lance doped in the 2009 Tour particularly in the final hill stage. Just a shame that a guy that seemed to have a pretty good life after miraculously defeating cancer would cheat with that gift of a second chance. I know that everybody doped in the Tour then (well at least all the "good: riders" but you just can't keep denying something when you are in that kind of a situation. Livestrong is still a wonderful thing but Lance has a lot of making up to do. I hope he does too
