Early indications are that you are al alone.

Hi Doug: Not that being "alone" proves anything about the quality of my perceptions, but take a look at Eric Webb's comment at the bottom of the 'Imposter' page.

Remember the good old days when you had to be a reputable film critic at a reputable newspaper or magazine? Oh how we miss those days...

Cheap digital photography?! It was shot on film by Erik Wilson!! What version of this film are you watching? -Seems like you may have watched a different movie from everyone else. It was one of the most suspenseful films of any genre that I have watched in a long time and as a documentary it is surely ground-breaking (as most of the other reviewers testify). Think you might need to watch it again and take your glasses with you next time Harvey.

Unfortunately you are all right. movies music and whatever else made for entertainment is made for human beings. some will enjoy and some will not enjoy. Opinions seem to be like assholes, everyone's got one. In my opinion based on what i like personally this looks like worth a watch.

Fortunately, I take a look at a wide spectrum of reviewers and their reviews.. I think I'm leaning toward the majority here, the side you're not on lol.

BUT! As long as your review is honest, I cannot criticize, that's all a review is supposed to be; and honest opinion!

Hang in there Harvey! As far as I'm concerned you called this spot on. I was expecting something extraordinary, instead what I got was a bore that strains credibility and is diminished by the director sitting on the fence. We've had two hugely overrated films the past few weeks with this and BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD.

And yeah that was absolutely cheap digital photography!

Thanks Jill. I'm wondering how many commentators saw the movie.
