truth_liesrating-3.5This movie comes off as interesting and prurient, though I greatly feared that it had Atom Egoyan directing it after seeing Exotica, a wretched and dull-witted excuse for filmmaking and barely worth mention even as cheap softcore porn.

Where The Truth Lies, on the other hand, is very sexy, while maintaining a dark intrigue as a fictionalized dirty analogue for the career of Martin & Lewis and the breakup of their dopplegangers' relationship based around a death.

Rather intriguing material, even if Egoyan's style is rather poor for the most part. This movie manages to come off as sultry and interesting period drama, instead of cheap eroticism.

Definitely worth looking into once.
