News & Interviews for L.I.E.
Critic Reviews for L.I.E.
A striking, unnerving coming-of-age film, "L.I.E." is the rare American movie that isn't afraid of ambiguity or confronting an audience's preconceptions.
Cuesta never gives us the satisfaction of fulfilling our expectations; instead he gives us a movie that we can ponder long the road takes its final turn.
Recoiling from L.I.E. is a very human, and frankly a very responsible, reaction.
A mature, insightful and extremely well-acted study.
Difficult and flawed feature debut.
Audience Reviews for L.I.E.
This is a fairly well acted film with part of the story being of a disturbing nature. The power of suggestion is everything in this film and heightens the controversial subject in hand, whilst giving Brian Cox a controversial role to tackle. The general storyline does hold your attention, but the highs and lows of the film and few and far between, leaving it on a very monotone level.
Good, but be ready for some biting qualities.
Amazing. The film covered so much ground and officially went where no coming-of-age story has ever dared to go. Paul Dano was dead on, one of the most believable confused teens i've seen on camera. Brian Cox was almost too good and I'm sure it was an incredibly hard role to play. The look and direction of it was really good. It was a perfectly depressing backdrop. I guess if you can't handle the subject matter it would be rough, but I really liked that aspect of it. It wasn't afraid to bring up any subject.
