The Imposter

Chicago Reader
7 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm accustomed to readers flipping out on me because they think I've spoiled a movie for them. (For the record, I try to warn people if I'm going to reveal any big surprise—as I will here—and if they want to stop reading that's fine with me.) What really blows my mind is readers who complain that I've ruined a documentary for them.

  • Conclusion: While The Imposter may be a documentary, it has all the makings of a first-rate piece of fiction cinema: fascinating characters, creative visuals, an absolutely spellbinding plot, and heart-pounding suspense. Those elements help this extraordinary work rival the best that contemporary film has to offer. It is highly unusual to encounter a non-fiction film with so much human interest and dramatic power.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE

  • Excerpt: Truth is often stranger than fiction as this jaw-dropping documentary proves. The story would be disconcerting as fiction, and it is cruel and heart-wrenching as the truth. There are as many twists and turns as in a suspense-thriller, and while watching the audience will have to remind themselves that no-one could possibly make up this improbable plot. The spoiler is in the title.

  • Excerpt: The Imposter werpt meer vragen op dan hij beantwoordt. Dat klinkt niet als een aanbeveling en toch is deze desoriënterende filmtrip het kijken meer dan waard.

  • Excerpt: In 1994 verdwijnt de dertienjarige Nicholas Barclay uit San Antonio in Texas. Ruim drie jaar later duikt hij op in Spanje. Zijn familie ontvangt hem met open armen, maar zowel psychiaters als de FBI ruiken onraad, wanneer de gevonden jongen niet op Nicholas lijkt. In The Imposter wordt de onopgeloste vermissingszaak volledig doorgelicht en worden bijzondere onthullingen gedaan.
