Critic Reviews for Lying

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Pretentious, contrived and made with less technical skillica than the average film school graduation project, pic assembles underdirected cast for drama about a pathologl liar.

Top Critic

A bleak excursion into poor little rich girl with entirely too much money turf, oddly combining disapproval and awe towards unconvincing post-teen heads of sumptuous McMansion households.

Audience Reviews for Lying

½

Apart from the crisp sound design and bucolic landscapes of the film, it was a little dull and...neuter. I think M. Blash tries to capture the simple beauty of everyday dialogue, but there many pauses and a cloying melodrama behind the women's general demeanor which isn't real to me. In terms of plot, its like a schlong in need of Viagra. There is no up, just one floppy line that follows throughout. What makes this worse is the fact that there is no buildup of tension. The film is forbodingly called Lying. I interpreted this in the other sense of the word, because all the girls do is lie on their rumps like bums drinking all weekend long. In the end, we don't really care if Megan is a liar because we really don't care about her character.

subtly abounds. Some have called this self-indulgent artsy trash, and I see how it can be viewed that way, but if you're a fan of films like Picnic at Hanging Rock, give this one a look.

This movie is calming and very artistic. This movie should be viewed with an open mind and patience or else it would be rather difficult to understand.
