Movie Info

It's human nature to lie; we all do it! From scandalous headlines to little white lies, (Dis)Honesty - The Truth About Lies explores the complex impact dishonesty has on our lives and everyday society. Interweaving groundbreaking experiments from celebrated behavioral economist Dan Ariely with personal stories from individuals affected by the unraveling of their lies, Ariely and a team of scientists uncover our propensity to be dishonest-sometimes even unknowingly. What's revealed is a fascinating look at the forces behind our collective behavior and the many truths behind lies. (C) Bond360

Like a TED talk augmented by scads of testimonials from ordinary folks who've been caught in the act, Yael Melamede's doc is more lively than one might expect.

Its findings don't add up to more than a sardonic gloss on a provocative subject.

No fibbing - this accessible, entertaining peek at why we lie, what the mental processes are and what such dishonesty achieves is utterly fascinating.

While (Dis)Honesty doesn't reveal any mind-blowing insights, it is chock-full of fun trivia - bankers are twice as likely to lie as politicians, and swearing on a Bible does make us more likely to tell the truth.

Audience Reviews for (Dis)Honesty: The Truth About Lies


An entertaining documentary that offers some curious information about our natural inclination for lying and the reasons that lead us to lie, even though the testimonials presented in between seem a bit arbitrary sometimes and don't always seem related to what is being said.

A great documentary on lies and the experiments that have tested how non truthful the typical person is. None of what is here however can be viewed as terribly surprising.
