A in depth story about social interaction
17 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Lying recently. Lying is a film that is peaceful to the viewer and has very in-depth characters. Throughout the film there are images that ultimately piece together the movie and reveal new traits within the core characters.

Lying succeeds in showing human social interaction in a modern yet raw tone. It grasps the insecurities and uncertainty that people have about others. It reveals how "Lying" to others, including those we love, can become a standard through necessity. For example, one may lie in an attempt to be more desired. It proves how lying is universal and happens subconsciously.

I thought Chloe Sevigny and Jenna Malone are absolutely brilliant in this film. Chloe shows her true range of talent, as she is cunning yet calm in her decisions and specific dialogue.

Lying is completely original in its setting. The colors and scenery surrounding the house are absolutely magnificent. I truly enjoyed this film and have not seen another like it. And I'm not Lying!
