I think, at least for many of the reviews posted here, that this movie
is being misunderstood. Mostly, the negative reviews focus on
deconstructing the theories that this movie puts forth, which totally
misses the point.
I found this whole movie extremely disturbing. It's a masterpiece in
terms of execution, cutting and sound. On it's own, it's a strangely
unique sports-doc that will, if you surrender to the feeling, have
great potential to move something within you.
In connection with the movie's subject, Lance Armstrong, it gets even
more weird. People present their theory about the movie and its
meaning, leaving behind a strangely vague sense of mystery to these
people and their offbeat theoriums. This is something the movie does
very well - it constantly forces you to create theories, cuing you into
considering everything it puts forth and creating an imaginative image
of the people behind the faces and tying the pieces of their stories
Next, there is the cutting. Images, special effects and clips from old
bike races dominate the screen, side by side with clips of Lance
Armstrong. There is a strange, unexplained relation between the
theories about Lance Armstrong and the old footage, to Lance Armstrong
himself. Special effects are utilized mostly to explain the rather
complicated points of the interviewees, and a haunting, mostly
electronic soundtrack creates a sense of unrest that permeates the
None of these elements function on their own, but together they create
the perfect atmosphere for the presentation of these theories.
What you must ask yourself before viewing this film is: can you
surrender to the feeling of a film without necessarily finding the
material entirely plausible? If so, I think the movie will convince you
and it will be a haunting experience. Don't watch it if you're just
looking for theories about Lance Armstrong's criminal deceptions - this
movie is not an academic analysis of the laws of biking, it is an
elevation of simple theories into a profoundly disturbing feeling; it
is a journey through the mind of obsessive fans that leaves you
understanding their passion, and with a sense of dread that I have
don't have the adequate words to describe.
And this, not having words to describe a particular emotion, sense
or... sensation, whether good or bad, is exactly what a good art film
should do to your mind. There is the sense that something "clicked",
that something was learned, that something moved. If it does not have
the same effect on you, too bad - but it's certainly worth a shot if
you haven't seen it!
