Celebrated documentary maker Alex Gibney (Taxi To The Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room) initially set out to praise Lance Armstrong, not to bury him.
That was something the seven-time Tour de France winner managed all by himself, when he finally ’fessed to Oprah Winfrey that he’d been doping himself to the teats for years… while raising more than $300m for cancer charities along the way.
Yes, it’s complex stuff, this: not just a fascinating and gripping profile of a “deeply flawed” character who fell foul of his own hubris, but also a sober examination of a culture that celebrates winners at any cost.
