“No Lies” serves as a commentary on the observational mode by revealing how emotional the documenter can be. The Cameraman (a character) does a good job of keeping out of the film physically, but hearing his voice really affects the observational theme of the movie. Originally this was just supposed to be a film about his friend getting ready for the night, but it turns into a look into the trauma suffered by victims of rape. During her rant on the events that happened that night, she described a woman walking past her and watching what happened. The Friend said that their eyes locked for a second, but she knew there was nothing to be done. After the long description of the awful event, the Cameraman still doesn’t believe her. It takes a river of tears, and a broken down woman for him to finally understand that this is real for her.
