Review in 10 Questions: The Imposter
1. How much maximum would you pay to see this film?
Before seeing it I would have paid up to £25, afterwards £16
2. Will you remember this film in 10 years time?
I will probably remember the story more than the film, and possibly miss-remember it. I’ll probably bring it up in conversations frequently.
3. Summarise the story / content:
An imposter fakes being a missing child. I wont say any more.
4. Did you ever consider crying?
No, not at all, even though the basis if this story is actually sad. Lots of the audience laughed instead. Think this is what was missing.
5. What are you more inspired to do as a result if watching it?
Go to Texas, and find these Americans that always end up in documentaries.
6. On the reality fantasy scale, where does this sit?
Hmmm, this story is apparently true, but I was half convinced it was fake and all the news items I’ve looked up after are also fake. Would that be more interesting?
7. Did anyone dance? Have you copied their moves since?
Yes, weirdly their was footage of the imposter dancing at the end. Fantastic dance. My boyfriend has since copied it.
8. Which of the following would most like this film: Mums, jocks, hipsters, Americans, hippies, small children, gangsters, philosophers, dads, nuns, clowns, grand parents, hunters, teenagers, other?
All these people will like it, except small children. That’s a good point. Its a great tabloid sensation story.
9. Are you going to agree with rest if audience about this film?
In the main part yes, lots of critics have praised it. I however thought it missed something emotionally.
10. Who had the best hair?
The imposter’s blond locks that obviously never got roots.
p.s The Imposter has his own youtube account. Don’t watch before the film.
