An intimate but explosive portrait of the man behind the greatest fraud in sporting history. Lance Armstrong enriched himself by cheating his fans, his sport, and the truth. But the former friends whose lives and careers he destroyed would prove to be his nemesis.Written by
The Lance Armstrong story is sad and incredible: a talented young athlete cheats and bullies his way to the top, threatening to ruin anyone who attempts to expose him; and this against a backdrop of nearly dying and making a comeback, not only as a sportsman, but as a campaigner against cancer. Meanwhile, a worrying number of other cyclists seem to have dropped dead for no conceivable reason other than suspected abuse of their bodies. 'Stop At Nothing' is a competent documentary: its makers have spoken to the right people, they have the right interviews, but it doesn't need to be artistically stunning, because of the power of the tale it tells. One of the people who appears in this film is journalist David Walsh: read his book, 'Seven Deadly Sins', for a more personalised account of the long, and ultimately victorious, fight against Armstrong.
