Lie To Me Season 1 Episode 10

vlcsnap-00001
“Bernie Madoff … anxiety and regret.”

vlcsnap-00002
Dr. Lightman is surprised.

vlcsnap-00004
It’s the ex-wife!

vlcsnap-00013

Two stories: A home is burned down. Who did it? A member of a rapper’s entourage was murdered in a drive-by shooting. Who did it?

vlcsnap-00014
Using projection to magnify fleeting and micro-expressions.

vlcsnap-00015

vlcsnap-00016
And we get the first triptych of the episode.

vlcsnap-00020
Gillian has a new haircut. Does that signify anything? (Not revealed in this episode, but I’m sure women viewers understood that completely!)

Check this out. Gillian busts out with some urban flashing:

vlcsnap-00024

vlcsnap-00025
Center guy was murdered. Can you tell why?

vlcsnap-00027
One of the rappers. Camouflage.

Gillian’s new hair …

vlcsnap-00033

… compared to her previous hair:

vlcsnap-000151

Interesting, no?

An emotional sequence:

vlcsnap-00041

vlcsnap-00042

vlcsnap-00043

vlcsnap-00054
Fake anger.

vlcsnap-00055

vlcsnap-00056
They should call this room the Face Command Center.

vlcsnap-00057

vlcsnap-00058
A palette of faces. Does the guy in the center belong with the two on the left or the right? And why?

vlcsnap-00061
Do they call this the Lightbox? Check out camera at upper left pointing downward.

vlcsnap-00062
Interesting composition.

vlcsnap-00067
Shit. A blithe yet level-headed and clear-eyed gangstah rapper, hustler, entertainer. Sham image to rake in the dough. (But what does all that fakery do to his listeners?)

vlcsnap-00068
Oh no!!

vlcsnap-00069
Paper books. Well, it’s doubtful the reference works Lightman uses could really become electronic. Although sequential animated tutorials would help students.

vlcsnap-00073
Hmmm … what cellphone does Dr. Lightman use?

vlcsnap-00083
The other gangstah rapper. The murdered guy quit the other rapper to work with him. What does his face tell you?

vlcsnap-00084
And what is his cousin’s face now saying?

vlcsnap-00088
“Caidin, you don’t get any of this if they know the truth about you.” A very touching line.

vlcsnap-00101
The second triptych of the episode.

Look at this emotional sequence:

vlcsnap-00105

vlcsnap-00106

vlcsnap-00107

vlcsnap-00108

vlcsnap-00109

vlcsnap-00110

vlcsnap-00111
Fear, betrayal, resentment, helplessness, anger.

vlcsnap-00122
What do you think she’s thinking?

vlcsnap-00123
And what is his face saying? (Tim Roth has tats. What’s that sentence inscribed on his shoulder say?)

Very interesting interplay between Gillian, Zoe (the ex-wife), and Lightman. A lot of little bits thrown out in dialogue that hint at something.
