  1. Someone has finally done it -- made a sexually explicit feature that is also a genuine and harrowing work of erotic drama.
  2. 75
    When all is said and done, Lies is just good, dirty fun.
  3. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    Surprisingly intimate, full of sly humor and, believe it or not, an odd sort of tenderness.
  4. A work of honesty and artistic integrity that nonetheless will be difficult to watch for many viewers.
  5. Reviewed by: Gregg Lachow
    The sex we see in Lies does not feel in any way enticing; the protagonists are left seeming pathetic by the end of the film, and few viewers are likely to go scavenging for sticks after leaving the theater.
  6. 40
    The daring but only partly successful Korean film Lies is built around voyeurism.
  7. In slightly less than 1,000 years, the competition for worst film of the third millennium will be fierce. Yet the smart money may well be on the Korean art film Lies.
