The Imposter Reviews
To make this documentary work, we needed some coabberating evidence that the family was guilty
I just don't get like how there could be sO MUCH incompetence at SO MANY LEVELS. I don't blame the family fooling themselves into believing this kid, I think grief and craziness and true belief can do a loooot of things to a person, but the fact that multiple law enforcement all the way up to interpol people could be SO SO stupid about this!?!? The guys EYES WERE BROWN. He looked so CLEARLY older than he said he was. It was just oVERTTTT i'm there with the private investigator like "no way in hell" upon the first look. Fair enough to get a run around or whatever but the fact their suspicion wasn't at like red alert from day one is just like, jesus, this is why bad things happen.
Number two thing that pissed me off is that fact that this loser is married with three kids. Of course some goddamn woman was like "oh you're an international liar? Let me get some of that." Like, that -on its own- is a mystery story about people tricking themselves into believing somebody is who he isn't. You can bet your ass this dude didn't like reach 40 and then be like "ah I'm done with all that lying." I'm sure this dude is messed up forever, therapy or not.
'The Imposter' tells one of the weirdest stories I've ever heard in my life. But even weirder than the story, is that it's true. With excellent direction and beautiful cinematography not normally seen in a docudrama, 'The Imposter' is gripping from start to finish.
The Imposter perfectly balances the reality of the story with the fiction of film, and it is the result of an outstanding vision applied to an even more impressive true story.
