THE INVENTION OF LYING (2009)
Just back from our local Vue Cinema to see the excellent new Ricky Gervais movie, "The Art Of Lying". We thought this was not only very very funny, but also really ingenious. The full genius of Ricky Gervais is shown in the offbeat concept, in the clever story, and in the sensitivity of the humour.
If you love The Office and Extras on TV, and if you enjoy Woody Allen, Monty Python, and the old Ealing classics such as Kind Hearts & Coronets, certainly this is not one to miss!
This fabulous movie is subtle and poignant, full of social comment and parody. It's also very nice and gentle, and at times, quite inspirational.
The basic premise is a world where absolutely everyone tells the truth all the time, until one man comes up with the idea of lying and becomes an overnight sensation, with plenty of laugh out loud moments throughout. Probably the best film we have seen all year!
THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE & HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 10/10
