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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
