Inside “(Dis)Honesty – The Truth About Lies.”

From cheating on taxes and in romance to telling the police officer who pulled us over that we didn’t realize how fast we were going, we are all lying all over the place all the time. Beyond our personal experiences, a cursory glance at public scandals ranging from Enron to Bernie Madoff to the recent “Deflategate” shows the prevalence of lies in our culture. However while we are simultaneously lying and repelled by lies, we are also fascinated with falsehoods given the variety of TED Talks on lies, films (“The Invention of Lying”) and all those country songs about those damn cheatin’ liars. So where is society headed? Is there anything we can do? Or is it all just a bunch of lies? Behavioral economist and psychologist/Duke University professor Dan Ariely and filmmaker Yael Melamede’s new documentary “(Dis)Honesty – The Truth About Lies” is not only an engaging expose and somewhat cautionary tale, but also it shows that there is hope for us liars.
