The Imposter Reviews

Matt Kelemen
Las Vegas CityLife

Credit director Bart Layton for taking a subject that appears barely capable of propping up hour-long, true-crime cable programming and turning it into compelling, full-length documentary.

The Imposter at every stage reveals another layer of the bizarreness of which human beings are capable.

The Imposter has many lessons; for the rest of us, it reinforces the golden rule: never assume anything about anyone

The revelations never stop. The title tells us what the story is about, but it is impossible to imagine the complex elements that involve not only the central character, but those who accept him as the person he pretends to be

The film looks like many a television crime series, and is as manipulative. With no disclaimer or separation, its method screams that this is full honest fact.

With his first feature doc, Layton proves himself not only adept at seeking out such true-life tales, but also telling them with the flair of a naturally gifted storyteller.

Laramie Movie Scope

This documentary film, like 'Catfish' a couple of years ago, is about a clever impersonator, but 'The Impostor' is an even stranger and more serious story, and by the time you get near the end of this bizarre tale, it gets even stranger than that.

In the annals of forged identity flicks, this is a towering Everest, dwarfing the deceivers in the likes of Catch Me If You Can and F for Fake.

This is edge-of-your-seat stuff and the difficulty is in the telling of the tale. To give any of this film away is a crime. You simply have to see it for yourself.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Superbly crafted documentary about a missing teenager who mysteriously resurfaces after three years, prompting a riveting, better-than-fiction Cold Case-style drama.

If only the movie didn't almost glamorise Bourdin's action, they'd have been onto a real masterpiece.
