If you ever have a chance to take someone else's identity and lead their life, would you like to?
It's a twisted question and frankly it's very difficult to answer to.
This is not the first movie/documentary, I have watched that deals with impersonators. Taking lives is the one that deals with this issue as well but that movie fails at many points and turns out to be more cheezy than ... read more

This was a stunning documentary movie about the 1997 incident. Tells the story of a Texas boy who returned home after the 3 years of disappearance. Created a lot thrilling excitation that equals to any masterpiece crime-thriller movie. Particularly to say it is what Hitchcock would have chosen to do if he was alive today. Sadly, it was a documentary movie, that does not really stop anyone from a w... read more

Description: The twisting, turning tale begins with an unsettling disappearance – that of Nicholas Barclay, a 13 year-old Texas boy who vanishes without a trace. Three and a half years later, staggering news arrives: the boy has been found, thousands of miles from home in Spain, saying he survived a mind-boggling ordeal of kidnap and torture by shadowy captors. His family is ecstatic to have him back no matter how strange the circumstances – but things become far stranger once he returns to Texas. Though the family accepts him, suspicion surrounds the person who claims to be Nicholas. How could the Barclay’s blonde, blue-eyed son ha ... (more)

"Pros: Strong, solid true-crime film (both thriller and documentary) about Frédéric Bourdin, the real-life con artist who tricked a Texas family into believing he was their missing son; interesting to hear the interview with Bourdin himself, as well as hear comments from others involved with the case and affected by Bourdin's deceit. Cons: As well-made as it is, 'The Imposter' didn't necessarily stick with me (I almost forgot about it); still, this one's definitely worth a watch."

"First viewing - Jan. 20th Recommended by djprojexion This was definitely interesting. My attention was grabbed from the start, and it raised a lot of interesting questions as it unfolded. It seems pretty ridiculous that a family would accept someone as a long lost family member without fully questioning the authenticity of a dubious identity claim, and the fact that it happened as detailed in this doc makes you wonder why they were so quick to do so. It seems the answers to that question are el"

Sadly, it was a documentary movie, that does not really stop anyone from a watch. It is one the documentary you should watch if you are a Hitchcock fan, especially if you are interested in the crime-thrillers that deals about identity crises. As it is a true story, it was unbelievable.

A 16 year-old Nicolas Barclay from Texas was missing for 3 years. All the sudden one day he appears with the changed personality. That brings joy in his family who was praying for” read more

I watched it and within 10 mins I was IN the documentary. It is amazingly made. The re-enactments are great, cinematography is top notch and all these things beautifully support the highly interesting tale of the imposter and his thinking. The best part is that you get to hear both sides. It has a twist in ” read more
