Sports film of the week: The Armstrong Lie

The upcoming documentary, directed by Alex Gibney, takes a detailed look at the life of the disgraced cyclist.

Title: The Armstrong Lie

Release date: 31 January

Director: Alex Gibney

Plot: The Armstrong Lie depicts the rise and fall of the disgraced US cyclist, Lance Armstrong, going all the way back to his childhood to take an in-depth look at one of the most talked-about athletes of recent years.

What the reviewers say: “The bitterest parts of Gibney’s movie are the interviews with the former teammates who were caught doping, and whom Armstrong, when he was still officially clean, viciously turned on” — The New Yorker.
