We aren’t lying when we say we have a special contest for you guys. Enter for a chance to win a copy of the riveting documentary THE ARMSTRONG LIE on DVD, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
In 2009, Academy Award® winning director Alex Gibney was given unprecedented access to both the Tour de France and Lance Armstrong, one of the most prominent figures in sports, to document the athlete’s return to cycling following his 2005 retirement. However, after years of denying allegations of doping and condemning ex-cyclists who were guilty of using performance-enhancing drugs, Armstrong became the center of a federal criminal investigation and an investigation by the US Anti-Doping Agency. As a result, the “ultimate comeback story” came to a halt.
In October 2012, Armstrong admitted to doping to the inner circle of filmmakers he had come to know over the years. Given this new information, the filmmakers decided that instead of chronicling the athlete’s comeback, THE ARMSTRONG LIE would be filled with new interviews from Armstrong himself, his former teammates, as well as cycling experts, emerging as an insider’s view and chronicle of Armstrong’s collapse. Shortly thereafter, as part of the new film, Armstrong confessed to doping before the world in a January 2013 interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Blu-ray and DVD include exclusive commentary from the Director, as well as a Q&A with Gibney, Frank Marshall, Bill Strickland, Jonathan Vaughters and Betsy Andreu. Both releases also come with more than 40 minutes of deleted scenes.
The Armstrong Lie is available on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 11th, but here’s how you can enter to win a copy of your own!
