Truly fascinating and blew my mind. Seems like a movie, but it really happened. Knew nothing about it, so if you don't, check it out. It's unbelievable

I have a pretty hard heart and even I found this difficult to watch at times. I can't help think that the one extra angle introduced weakens the power of the story somewhat, but it is certainly interesting.

Not really a documentary at all, The Imposter is more of a fictionalized movie supposedly based on a true story. The subject is interesting, but the decision to obfuscate the line between real and "dramatized" footage and leave the audience no way of knowing what is actually true makes the film a farce.

Impeccably edited account of a remarkable tale. I did feel a bit cheated though: you wonder how the filmmaker is going to resolve the burning question of why the family embraced this man, and Layton hints at a sinister reason, but in the end doesn't follow through. Strangely, the pathological liar at the centre of this story comes across as the most believable character.

It started very slowly and I just felt like everyone was trying to make themself seem awesome or at least not as stupid as they looked, but it built up to a very good ending and turned out to be quite interesting...if not for the story, then for the filmmaking

an incredible, unnerving, mysterious story. told with the grooming and near tonelessness that you might expect from this type of co-production documentary.

This is probably the closest a film has to come to "scaring" me since I realised that films aren't scary. The story itself is terrifying enough but it increases tenfold upon the realisation that this is an actual documentary (I went into this completely blind). Incredibly well made and a fascinating, nail-biting experience. One of this years best.

Love the way the film takes color entirely from its lying-his-ass-off subject. By the end of the film we are just as confused as the police, judges and other authorities must have been.

Good story. Just feels like a really long episode of a police investigation show, though.

Maybe I'm missing something, but it basically seemed like a typical episode of Unsolved Mysteries. The film could have benefited from exploring what made some one of the central characters tick; the fact that there is little information and clues at the end of the film also disappointed me(predicated score: 72)
