The Hoax Reviews

Tony Macklin
Fayetteville Free Weekly

The Hoax is the real thing. It's a breezy, engaging caper. It's like a heist film of the 1970s, but the pilferers are literary men not bank robbers.

Que Irving queira se sentir importante, é compreensível; que sua suposta cinebiografia compartilhe da fraude, nem tanto.

An amazing story filled with twists, turns, intrigue, betrayals, hallucinations and close calls.

Despite good energy and a source with ample potential, the film is held back by trite ideas.

It's hard to get a fix on what Hallstrom had in mind.

Despite making Clifford Irving into a grubby suburbanite rather than the mischievous Abby Hoffman figure he really was, the film is generally entertaining a good introduction to the greatest literary hoax of all time.

At times the film becomes more about Richard Gere and his Oscar grab than about the story... But the bait-and-switch moments as Irving plays the media are the highlights.

Amazing though the story is, it would be nothing without Gere's slippery, insinuating -- if not precisely likable -- performance as Irving.

Both an enjoyable call-back to the early '70s and a well-acted film that gives Richard Gere a chance to fully exhibit his acting skills.

The film is an exciting tale of deception and fast-paced thinking, the perfect therapy for all the growing core of cynics who are at a breaking point where maybe they don't feel they can even trust "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition".

The publishers believed him because the idea was so implausible. It had to be the truth.

I've never been a fan of Richard Gere, but he gives the performance of his career as Clifford Irving.

Observer [UK]

As superbly played by Gere, Irving is a weak, desperate man, a cheesy charmer in search of his share of the American dream with a psychopathic disregard for the consequences of his actions.
