Twisty

Steve-Janes, Flicks
22 February 2013
  • Summary: This doco is has more thrills and drama than most of the fiction you'll see on screen. You go in thinking its going to be the story of how a con man duped people - which it kind of is.

Outstanding Cutting-Edge Cinema

  • Summary: This documentary deserves to be nominated for the Nobel Prize for science. It single-handedly does more to advance the fight against insomnia than any drugs developed by pharmaceutical companies.

Too incredible to be fiction

Hannah-Carter, Flicks
22 February 2013
  • Summary: The Imposter is a debut film from Bart Layton, a documentary featuring interviews with the subjects themselves and footage from the time expertly spliced with dramatisation. The story is too incredible to be fiction. In 1994, a 13 year old Texan boy Nicholas Barclay disappears without a trace.

Spellbinding Doco with knobs on!

  • Summary: This documentary ticks all the boxes and leaves you wanting to know more. I knew something of the story of this guy which is why I went. But I got way more than I bargained for. I defy anyone who loves a good yarn not to be captivated by this twisted tale of the truly weird.

Good. See it.

  • Summary: From the moment it starts, you know The Imposter is going to be revelatory. Of course, you KNOW he's a con-man. You KNOW he gets caught. But none of that makes any difference as you're literally gasping at the audacity of this man and his actions.

A tribute to human gullibility

Weds_Loafers, Flicks
22 February 2013
  • Summary: Yesterday 5 of us saw "The Imposter", the true story of a French conman who, at the age of 23, successfully impersonated a missing American teenager who he bore no resemblance to, and became a member of the family (despite English being his second language).

  • Summary: This was interesting and bizarre. The family was odd and it leaves you wondering if they had a part to play in the boys disappearance. Perhaps they are all very good liars. The mother passed the polygraph twice after all...

You couldn't make this up.

Apple-Man, Flicks

  • Summary: One of those docs where you can hardly belive the story as it unfolds - truly strange and compelling. Well put together, to know too much about the story before watching would ruin it. Recommended.
