"The Armstrong Lie" is truly singular, a tale of ambition that's almost mad enough to be mythic."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Alex Gibney delivers not just a detailed, full-access account of his subject, in all his defiance, hubris and tentative self-reckoning, but also a layered inquiry into the culture of competitiveness, celebrity, moral relativism and hypocrisy."
- Justin Chang, Variety
"You'd have to start looking into ancient Greek tragedy to top it as a showcase for pure, unadulterated hubris. That's one of the things that makes The Armstrong Lie, which has more on its mind than the mere debunking of a tarnished hero."
- Bruce Ingram, Chicago Sun-Times
