Forbidden Lie$ (Forbidden Lies) (2007)
Critic Consensus: A thrilling and complex documentary about an international con-artist that's as confounded with the distinction between truth and lies as its wildly believable (and equally untrustworthy) subject.

Critic Reviews for Forbidden Lie$ (Forbidden Lies)
Even after you've seen Forbidden Lie$, the dizzying, drop-dead fascinating documentary on Norma Khouri, you won't be absolutely sure if she's on the level or a con artist ranked as "one of the best ever." That's how good she is.
Forbidden Lies, a documentary by Anna Broinowski, records, fascinatingly but with far too much slick finesse, Norma's world-class con artistry.
Forbidden Lie$ holds our attention with Khouri's increasingly brazen and unrepentant insistence that she's the only voice of truth in a violent world.
Even as Broinowski exposes Khouri's shameful and pathological abuse of such genuine tragedies, the filmmaker may be giving her subject exactly what she wants.
Cool-headed, lighthearted and outrageously entertaining, Forbidden Lie$ is documentary-as-striptease.
Audience Reviews for Forbidden Lie$ (Forbidden Lies)
Really interesting documentary. It seemed to go from bad to worse with this woman and her stories. My end impression of her was that she was slightly crazy.
