The man who wasn't (all) there.
This has 5 stars on many reviews, with Total Film saying:
"Creepier than Catfish and as cinematic as Man On Wire, this is an unnerving story immaculately told and a strong contender for doc of the year."
Well.... I found "Catfish" interesting and "Man on Wire" absorbing (but more on an emotional level), so this bodes well..... or maybe it's been oversold..... We'll see......
In 1994 the disappearance of13-year-old Nicholas Barclay rocked his small Texan town to its core. Without any clue to his whereabouts, the ensuing search looked like a lost cause. But his family kept hoping and praying and, over three years later, they got their miracle. Nicholas was found halfway around the world, living on the streets in Spain, leading to the most unlikely and emotional of reunions. But, all was not as it seemed. With its jaw-dropping twists and revelations more reminiscent of film noir than documentary, THE
IMPOSTER rivals 2010’s CATFISH for pure unscripted thrills, while evoking classic identity thrillers such as THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY.
