Time Out says
When director Jonathan VanBallenberghe turned thirty-six, he realized that he had been addicted to gambling for a third of his life. To end the problem once and for all, he entered into psychotherapy and made this documentary about the experience. Lapse portrays the fractured state of mind of a person in the grip of a gambling addiction. Its narration and dialogue were recorded during VanBallenberghe’s own psychotherapy sessions.
