A Landscape Of Lies Reviews

  • Aug 03, 2020

    Straight off the bat we know that ‘A Landscape of Lies' contains a lot of unlikeable people doing unlikeable things to whoever they choose to. This very ambitious tale of the after effects when the murder of a decorated war hero collides the lives of those connected with it; has a lot to like and a lot to appreciate. Whilst the making of the film does have its own highly interesting story (that you can research online if you wish) Director Paul Knight has done a fantastic job with what is rumoured to have been an £84,000 budget and with a wonderfully long cast list – as I'd mentioned before, this film is ambitious with its storytelling and characters. It does suffer a little from the lower budget side of things and sadly those are things that can happen and do happen when filmmakers don't have the chance to perfect what they want to perfect but can't because of a funding issue. However I went into ‘A Landscape of Lies' to be told an interesting story and most certainly was told just that in this multi-strand tale of betrayal and secrets with flashbacks and present day scenarios. A Landscape Of Lies' is most definitely worth watching on all levels, for its story, its cast, its completion and for the hard work of all those involved in bringing this labour of love to reality in the face of the behind the scenes battle
