The latest 30 for 30 ‘LANCE’, from acclaimed director Marina Zenovich, is a fascinating, revealing, comprehensive, chronicle of one of the most inspirational and then infamous athletes of all time.

Armstrong, along with a collection of teammates, friends, rivals, and journalists, all reflect on his story, creating a fascinating character study, capturing a unique chapter of sports history, and insisting the audience make its own interpretations about the many different sides of a complex saga.
