Movie Reviews

St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 10/10 by Calvin Wilson "The Imposter" is one of the best films of the year.
Empire Magazine - 10/10 by Guy Lodge The year's most fascinating and frightening doc so far, The Imposter delves far beneath the hysterical tabloid headlines.
Total Film - 10/10 by Matt Glasby Creepier than "Catfish" and as cinematic as "Man On Wire," this is an unnerving story immaculately told and a strong contender for documentary of the year.
The Aristocrat - 10/10 by Adam Ross If you are a fan of true crime stories or the workings of the human mind, The Imposter will blow you away.
Daily Express (UK) - 10/10 by Allan Hunter The Imposter frequently sends your jaw hurtling to the floor as it tries to understand the great pretender and a family only too willing to accept him as one of their own.
Guardian - 10/10 by Peter Bradshaw When this film was over, I felt as if I had been holding my breath for 99 minutes. It is pure, delicious suspense.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 10/10 by Tirdad Derakhshani Layton's dazzling film is an exciting, edge-of-your-seat experience superior to any Hollywood mystery you're likely to see for a long time.
ViewLondon - 10/10 by Matthew Turner Impressively directed and skilfully edited, this is an utterly riveting true crime documentary that exerts a powerful grip and is by turns chilling, shocking and disturbing. It's also one of the best films of the year.
Screen-Space - 10/10 by Simon Foster The Imposter morphs effortlessly from scene-to-scene - a noir-ish mystery thriller, a crime-scene procedural, a drama chronicling a family's anguish, a facts-only documentary - yet exists as a fluid single entity of profoundly impactful force.
East Bay Express - 10/10 by Kelly Vance Layton, a television documentarian, uses familiar Errol Morris-style techniques to wrap us in the mystery of Nicholas Barclay.
Seattle Times - 10/10 by Moira MacDonald It's ... practically unbelievable, but you won't be able to look away.
HeyUGuys - 10/10 by Jamie Neish The Imposter is one of those rare documentaries that, while its hard to know exactly how much is intensified for the purposes of making the film, is genuinely unsettling and infuriating to believe as fact and fiction.
