Thoughts: I love a good true crime documentary and one glance at the trailer for The Imposter and you know a gripping ride awaits you. With elements of a real life Changeling, this doc looks to be a slickly produced and dangerously dark journey that…well…you can read the description for yourself. What excites me about this is that The Imposter is produced in association with A&E Indie films who also gave us some of the better documentaries of the last decade (Client 9, The Tillman Story, The September Issue, American Teen, Jesus Camp to name a few). I get the feeling there is a layer of dramatic reinterpretation employed so here’s hoping the doc doesn’t come off as an episode of “Unsolved Mysteries”
