Editorial Reviews

When a long weekend brings four women together in the countryside, each of them is forced to navigate the depths of social interaction as virtual strangers. How well do we really know the friends we make in adulthood? And in an age of lies, what can be made of the person who tells untruths so small they serve no obvious purpose?

Special Features

None.

Customer Reviews

She is not a main character whatsoever or even important.
K. Nash
I'm not sure why I didn't just turn it off 30 minutes into the movie, but I guess I just kept thinking something would happen and kept waiting for that moment.

Why would a group of women, alone, not talk about sex or men(or women)?

I have only been burned twice in the last six years in how I research ordering for my store. Welcome to the 2nd. The same reviews shown here got planted/pasted at numerous sites on the Internet, supplemented by a couple others from crew members to make this sound like a masterpiece.

At approximately 22 minutes into the film I decided to do the research to see what went wrong on me even paying for this mess. We have a story about four women uniting at a country home for unknown reasons and with unknown motives. Throw in some horrible hand-held camera work, bad film quality, characters you learn nothing about or why they are even talking to each other, senseless dialogue, boring performances and voila: 94 non-returnable minutes.

I even tried to get this from the point of view of my customers having a ladies night or wanting to see something edgy or fascinating. Nothing I listed could qualify for that. Yes, I am pissed I wasted money for a movie most customers will find boring, meaningless and poorly written - but even as into minimalist films as I am - this is a definite skipper.

DVD: Todd Haynes' interview of M and the commentary are a double dose of furtherance into this film, so if you enjoyed this, it makes it a purchase item, otherwise be careful on this one.

Edit: The reviews have been removed (at least at the moment) - so in case one is wondering what the heck I am babbling about, I swear there were two other reviews here...

I guess I'm the only one that liked this movie. :( I thought it was subtle, well written and interesting. No, there are no bomb blasts, no cgi and no special effects. Just 4 women who have a very complicated relationship. The thing I found most intriguing is that the main character played by Chloe Sevigny is obviously a sociopath. I've also known people like her so I thought this film was very genuine and true to that type of personality. I'm not a film student or a critic and I don't know anything about independent films like EVERYONE who's posted comments here seems to. I just liked it as a regular person. Maybe you will too.

I agree with much of what has been said by the other reviewers. I am, however, in a more relaxed place because I spent $1 for this movie at a video store going out of business. So, I am not angered by the outlay of cash, as others were. The movie was OK and made sense only after I watched the interview of the director in the Special Features. I believe there is some substance to this tale, and not an altogether waste. I was struck by how sexless the movie is. The actresses are neither sensual nor interested in sex. Why would a group of women, alone, not talk about sex or men(or women)? Lee Lee Sobieski's talents were wasted in this movie. I could see Jena Malone trying to make things happen. I will probably watch it again to see if I agree with my own remarks. If Lying is accepted by Criterion Collection, I will seriously doubt my own judgment.

Although several of the reviewers were disappointed with the film, I found it at least interesting from a film-making perspective. The scenery of rural New York (near the Berkshires) is beautiful, as is the house they used during filming. Everything, including the weather, is sort of gauzy and quiet (very little music in the film). It's true that the plot (if it can be called that), is loose at best, so do not watch this film expecting a significant story. The gist, as I understood it: a woman invites a friend from yoga and two interns (?? they're college students "working" for the hostess) to her country home. Over the course of the movie, the hostess tells her guests that her parents died, left her money with which, it is implied, she built the house. None of the women seem to know each other very well; a point that is underscored by the seemingly pointless but repeated lies/untruths told by the hostess. (The story is not revealed entirely in chronological order.)

If you enjoy cinéma vérité and the opportunity to observe, there are worse ways to spend ninety minutes than letting this quiet little film wash over you.

Ok, this is just a terrible movie. I knew that going into this. But what, or who rather, I expected to see in this movie was Leelee Sobieski. The cover and trailer to this movie is just very misleading. She is just a neighbor of Sevingy's character who waves flags around to get her attention, and seeing she can't, stops by for a short time maybe twice. That's it. She is not a main character whatsoever or even important. They are very awkward scenes and I couldn't even make sense of them. But that pretty much sums up the whole movie.

The main reason I rented this though, wasn't mainly for Sobieski but for Anthony Roth Costanzo's role, who is now a distinguished and famous counter tenor. And one of my most favorite opera singers. I loved his role as Francis (which he won an award for) in "A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries" (also with Leelee Sobieski.) So I wanted to see him in this movie, "Lying," as well. After watching this very very boring movie for some time anxiously waiting for him, I suddenly heard him singing out of nowhere at a random part. He sounded to be coming from outside the house, and with Sevingy's character not letting them go outside, all 4 girls end up running around the house trying to find out him and where this voice is coming from. Sometimes it sounds like he is in the house, in different places. So the whole scene just shows them frantically running around, while Sevingy's character ends up just standing at the fireplace with her glass of wine just watching and laughing at them. After a whole 5 minutes of this, she finally tells them that "he's in the fireplace" and they rush to see. He sings one last time. And that was that. He is never seen or heard again.
