L.I.E. back to product details

judged by the cover

This movie looked better from the cover than it did on my screen. not as shocking as "shocking" is defined for me. well acted, interesting plot. worth viewing but don't clear your schedule for it.

very interesting

A well filmed movie - although everything was tied up a bit too neatly at the end. This is not your typical coming of age flick.

Maybe I see way too many way too dark films - but...

I thought this one was damn tame, and that - like too many movies - its was hyped way past its due. On the other hand, maybe I should be glad that this film is really disturbing to many people. I, on the other hand, found "Happiness" a much more disgusting and unpleasant depiction of a pedophile, and that one was supposed to be some kind of funny or something.... (I'm some kind of minority for not liking that film, I know.)

I thought that L.I.E., on the other hand, gives a surprisingly even-handed, realistic and even empathetic protrayal of a man struggling with an internal demon he can't understand. Of course, that doesn't mean its a great movie. I liked it, though, and I was surprised by the ending. And that's got to be worth something, right?

(Plus, the guy's doorbell is a scream!)

Harsh Realities and Survival of the Fittest??

Not always an easy film to watch, (enjoy is hardly applicable?), but, an extremely brave look, at uncomfortable and often distasteful topics. Parents, pillars of the community, law enforcement, the military, all-blind to their own ignorance and moral corruption. Some fine performances by the two leads, the wise use of supporting and fringe characters, and the non-judgmental portrayal of the characters make the film thought provoking and not easy to shake. The sad confused youth, looking for emotional connection as well as attempting to discover and accept who he really is. ? "Lanes moving east, lanes moving west, and lanes that go straight to hell."
