Creepy but fascinating glimpse inside the mind of an abused but sociopathic con artist drifter who successfully imitated a family's teenage son for a period of months before a detective found him out. Raises all sorts of "what the fuck?" questions, few of which it answers satisfactorily. Sadly, the weakest aspect is the editing and narration, which feels like a small-time US TV producer got their hands on it. Frightening that people like Bourdin exist, but the film is hard to take at face value.

It's the #1 thing a documentary needs to be which is inherently very interesting. Unfortunately some of the editing is quite manipulative which I consider a detriment to the film overall.

Though annoyed with the drawn out, manipulative third act, I thought the idea behind this film was an important one: we tell ourselves stories, construct narratives that bring us some kind of benefit. Within such frameworks, suggestion takes on a powerful role. I was most mystified by the FBI investigator, as she was supposed to be someone with the habit of critical thinking, but even she was taken in. Viva la pensée critique!

The decision to forefront Bourdin's deception saps a great deal of the film's mystery — it's immediately clear that this brown-eyed, French-accented dude with a five o'clock shadow is not young Nicolas — and as a result the family's acceptance of him is never really rendered intelligible. There's some great material for satire here — how the hell did Spanish and American authorities allow this situation to happen? — but it's played far too straight.

The documentary seems to imply something is going on with the Barclays and it's impossible not to be suspicious. Why would they accept Frederic Bourdin as their missing son when that's obviously not the case? Jason's suicide, as well as Beverly's unpredictable behavior, seems to point the accusatory arrow their way, but no conclusive evidence has been found. What the fuck? Is this Texas' fault? Fucking Texas. "My main goal in life was not to think." - Beverly Dollarhide

One of the most masterfully edited films I've ever seen. Especially the ending, which built suspense in an incredible way. The story is too crazy to not be compelling throughout and Bourdin is such a weasel that you are gripped to the story trying to figure out if he's lying or not. The mom had that Robert Durst vibe, stop licking your lips baby. The film hits new heights when the private eye is introduced. That guy needs a reality show asap

I'm no government-employed linguist or anything, but I'm pretty sure that there isn't any amount of military-grade buttsecks that could transform a southern Texas drawl into something that sounds like it should come from Pepe le Pew's Albanian cousin. SPOILER: the title.

A good docu with a fictional narrative, or so it feels. It's bizarre this actually happened. The only thing the director could have improved on is the ending, exploring Bourdin's psyche. It is obvious he is a genuine fantasist and has a personality disorder. I would have liked to know how he was shaped this way. Given the stories he told to some therapists he could have been abused himself, as a child. Overall a good documentary. The thick thriller element could have been toned down somewhat.
