Rating: 6.8/10 -- On the surface The Imposter is one hell of a story, but it raises more questions than answers. Full Review

THE IMPOSTER is slippery, manipulative, unstable and smoothly confounding. It's also one of the most entertaining documentaries to appear since EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP...

The plot and unravelling of this criminal Rich Little keeps you glued to the screen. But even more interesting than the star trickster are the family members who want to believe in his story. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- British director Bart Layton has only slightly fictionalised this extraordinary story for his documentary, which is told more as a thriller than a statement of hard fact. Full Review

A mesmerizing psychological thriller bulging with twists, turns, nasty insinuations and shocking revelations....THE IMPOSTER is all the more astonishing because it actually happened.

Product Description:

Documentary filmmaker Bart Layton uses vivid reenactments to tell the tale of a Texas family whose prayers are answered when their missing teenage son returns home after nearly four years, and the mystery that begins to emerge as the newcomer's actual identity comes into question. San Antonio, Texas: 1994. A local teen vanishes after going out to play basketball. As the clues run cold over the next three years, his grieving family continues to fear the worst. Incredibly, in 1997, they receive word that their son has been found in Spain. Despite being ruthlessly tortured by his abductors, he miraculously appears to be in good health. But the more questions that inspectors ask, the less his answers seem to add up. And while his tattoos match those of the kidnapping victim, that's just about where the resemblance ends. Meanwhile, everyone but the victim's family seems to recognize that something is amiss.
