An intimate but explosive portrait of the man behind the greatest fraud in sporting history. Lance Armstrong enriched himself by cheating his fans, his sport, and the truth. But the former friends whose lives and careers he destroyed would prove to be his nemesis.Written by
This Australian made documentary takes a look at Lance Armstrong's doping scandal including interviews with his former teammates, friends and enemies. Using assorted TV clips it follows his career from the beginning, including his seven wins in Tour de France, his battle against cancer, his come back, and the suspicions, all the way to his downfall culminating with him finally admitting everything to Oprah Winfrey on live TV. -Which ultimately made me feel really sad, a feeling I didn't expect.
After so many years of adamantly denying he was doping he finally just... admits it. I tried to figure out why this bothered me so much and I think its because everybody wants a hero.
A well done documentary but not impartial, this destroys him from beginning to end, while also showing just how big this scandal was and the (apparent) lengths that were undergone to keep certain people quiet. It felt like a giant conspiracy with huge companies, millions of dollars and death threats. Wow. 7/7/14
