Well acted, well written, visually fantastic
22 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this short film online because I had enjoyed another film that Vaughn Juares / Joseph Schneider had worked on called Blowing Bubbles (a comedic short).

I'll admit that I was searching for comedy and definitely did not find it in Lie. However, from the very beginning, this narrated biopic caught my interest.

I won't spoil the story for anyone who hasn't had the privilege of watching this film yet but let me just say that this is a true story involving one of the Beach Boys and Charles Manson. I had never heard this story before and wouldn't have expected a 10 minute short to tell as well as Lie does.

Joseph Schneider and Ryan Kiser gave great performances. This is a must watch
