Remember!! This review is about the Blu Ray quality, not about the documentary itself so I'm going to assume you all ready saw it and if you didn't.. WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!
The Blu Ray release of the Documentary marks an event for me ...to see in better quality something I loved a lot!!
Bart Layton's film The Imposter chronicles a true story that is beyond bizarre. In fact, it is so ridiculous that I hope certain government workers lost their jobs after it was picked up by the media. It is incredible, really, that so many different people could not see the obvious.
In 1994, 13-year-old Nicholas Barclay disappeared from San Antonio, Texas. His family informed the police and they started looking for him. But they could not find him. For a while the family was convinced that sooner or later Nicholas would turn up, but eventually they lost hope. At this point all they wanted to know is what had happened to him.
Three and a half years after Nicholas had disappeared, someone called his family with the news they had been waiting for but concluded they would never get – their boy was found alive. But he wasn't in Texas. In fact, he wasn't even in the United States. Nicholas was in Linares, Spain. Barely able to contain her excitement, his older sister, Carey Gibson, immediately packed her bags and headed to Spain. She had never before been outside of the United States.
In the meantime, U.S. and Spanish officials began questioning Nicholas,because Nicholas did not want to talk. Eventually, he simply told them that he did not remember much, because while he was missing some very bad people had done some very bad things to him and he lost a lot of his memories.
But when Carey arrived in Spain and hugged and kissed Nicholas, he started remembering. She showed him the family pictures she had brought with her and told him what his life was before he disappeared, hoping that all of his memories would come back. And they certainly did – Nicholas suddenly started remembering everything.
After one final interview with U.S. and Spanish officials, Nicholas was issued a U.S. passport. Carey bought him a plane ticket and they headed back to San Antonio. It was a real miracle. Nicholas was finally coming home.I will not talk any further,go watch it. I am quite skeptical about a lot of what they claim happened, but even if half of is true then…what an incredibly strange world we live in.
Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Bart Layton's The Imposter is very impressive. There are a lot of close-ups throughout the film and virtually all of them convey excellent depth. Clarity is also consistently good.
That being said,watch it in any quality!!
