In 2008, Academy Award winning filmmaker Alex Gibney set out to make a documentary about Lance Armstrongs comeback to the world of competitive cycling. Widely regarded as one of the most prominent figures in the history of sports, Armstrong had broughtglobal attention to cycling as the man who had triumphed over cancer and went on to win bicyclings greatest race, the Tour de France, a record seven consecutive times.Charting Armstrongs life-story (and given unprecedented access to both the Tour and the man), Gibney began filming what he initially envisioned as the ultimate comeback story Armstrongs return from his 2005 retirement and his attempt to win his eighth Tour. Indeed, more than just an athlete, Armstrong, through his inspiring personal narrative and charitable works, had come to embody nothing short of the possibilities of the human spirit itself. An unprecedented scandal, however, would rewrite both the Armstrong legend and Gibneys film. By early 2013, Lance Armstrong hadadmitted to using performance enhancing drugs following a federal criminal investigation and an investigation by the US Anti- Doping Agency (in 2012 the USADA, in conjunction with the International Cycling Union, effectively stripped Armstrong of all seven of his previous titles and banned him from all sport for life). Setting out to chronicle a comeback, Alex Gibneys The ARMSTRONG Lie instead emerges as a riveting insiders view, chronicling the collapse of one of the greatest legends of our time. As Lance Armstrong tells Gibneys camera: I didnt live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one.
