Tube: Charing Cross B@CKROWBLOGS Itsgreat...honest THE INVENTION OF LYING (12A) CAN you imagine Ricky Gervais crying tenderly and convincingly at the side of a dying woman? Can you imagine him competing with Rob Lowe for the affections of a beautiful brunette? Can you imagine him writing the new ten commandments on the back of pizza boxes and gaining global fame? No, neither could I. But he does all three in this charming film, and with real panache. Not only did he co-write this unusual script but he co-produced and co-directed it too -- David Bowies chubby little loser is anything but. This film is leaps and bounds away from Sloughs paper desperado as he removes his clown mask and gives us something a bit more serious.
