The Armstrong Lie widely regarded as one of the most prominent figures in the history of sports, Armstrong had triumphed over cancer and went on to win bicycling’s greatest race, the Tour de France, a record seven consecutive times.
Charting Armstrong’s life-story (and given unprecedented access to both the Tour and the man), Gibney began filming what he initially envisioned as the ultimate comeback story – Armstrong’s return from his 2005 retirement and his attempt to win his eighth Tour. Indeed, more than just an athlete, Armstrong, through his inspiring personal narrative and charitable works, had come to embody nothing short of the possibilities of the human spirit itself. An unprecedented scandal, however, would rewrite both the Armstrong legend and Gibney’s film.
Doping accusations weave in and out of the story, with Armstrong’s personal performance-enhancing medical advisor, Michele Ferrari, introduced with a dose of tongue-in-cheek irony as the villain of the piece. It’s fascinating to learn just how sophisticated the deceptions were, with illegal blood transfusions at one point carried out in plain sight on a team bus during a Tour stage. Armstrong was subsequently stripped of his victories and banned from all competitive sporting activities for life. Now the question is this famous cyclist deserved the punishment he received at the end of the whole doping scandal? You will have the best answer after seeing this controversial documentary.

During 29-years of career Mr. Eros Ramazzotti sold more than than 50 million records and created a phenomenal music ambience in a concert full of story and magic in a great debut at Greek Theatre in Los Angeles C.A. His music that underlines a time-honored Mediterranean melodicism with rock beats and synthesized textures with 6 musicians and two show girls, all of them were shown in closeup on two large video screens throughout the concert. This Italian Singer sang his best hits such as: La Cosa Mas Bella, Se Basstase Una Canzone, Amarte es Total, Calma apparent, La Vida Todavia, Noi and more. His high vocal quality was solely in Spanish, Italian and English. Upon further listening, as a reviewer I found a distinct hint of Latin music in all the songs, which are bouncy and hummable, but the overall feel remains American. The place was very well equipped and you could easily go down and get drinks and snacks, full of clean and comfortable seats where you could hear everything. That night was full of emotions and feelings and people from Los Angeles was so happy to applause him due the audience was very charmed because was a concert full of surprises and worth paying a show like this one.
