Yes the interview with the cancer survivor was worth including as was the interview with Emma O'Reilly who is probably the hero of the whole sorry saga as she knew what the outcome was going to be initially. I'm sure his comment about his relationship with Sheryl Crowe will be noted ; about how he was with her for a long time but was never very happy ! Not even sure why he would even bother saying that. The most perplexing part was at the very end when he seemed to be saying that Lars Ullrich and Pantani were both victims like him ! He was never close friends with Ullrich but seemed to empathize with him simply because he was Armstrong's main rival through the years. Although Armstrong did do the decent thing and reached out to him when Ullrich was having problems. Armstrong's family seem to be pretty grounded especially his son which was good to see. As for the dinner preparation scene and the cut finger, for some reason I was expecting something weird to happen there and the way he was holding the knife reminded me of how children try and help their mothers in the kitchen ! Landis came across as one of the more interesting personalities in the documentary.Almost! I did laugh out loud. Still trying to control the narrative. Did you all see where someone was saying he knew about random comments on message boards? I got some satisfaction knowing he was monitoring all the spot on commentary that happened here.
I did like how one of the cancer survivors talked about the tangible results of Livestrong's work WRT sterility following cancer treatment, it gave me an appreciation for "cancer awareness" that I had certainly been lacking. That woman having 4 kids she would never have had without knowing about the sterility issues from chemo...that's a lot of good coming out of Livestrong's efforts and Lance's transparency around own chemo experiences. As are all humans, he's a complex mix of good and bad. He's still delusional if he thinks there's no difference between what he did (sued people, ruined lives) and what the others did. He's got an amazing ability to admit some stuff and totally be in denial about other things. Always fighting.
I enjoyed the documentary. A good wrap. By the way, his fiancée seems super nice. I really like her. Wonder how she copes with a guy like that who makes everything about himself.
