Why This “Bonkers” Documentary, “The Imposter,” Has Been a Netflix Hit 10 Years After Its Initial Release

Although it’s been almost ten years since the original release of The Imposter, the real crime documentary’s debut on Netflix has been met with widespread acclaim.

In The Imposter (2012), directed by Bart Layton, we learn the true story of French con artist Frédéric Bourdin, who convinced authorities and a grieving family that he was their missing son Nicholas Barclay three years earlier in 1994.

He said he was kidnapped in the United States and sex trafficked in Spain. Bourdin was older, had a French accent, and had different-colored hair and eyes than the lost youngster, but his family still referred to him as “Barclay” because of the tattoos they shared.

After some time, a private investigator and an FBI agent uncovered the truth, revealing that Bourdin was a con artist. Disbelief at the “bonkers” documentary and his ability to get away with his mimicry have led viewers to take to Twitter.

Social media has been ablaze with the confused comments

 In the words of one shocked spectator, “watching #TheImposter on Netflix like omg.” Another person questioned, “How isn’t ‘I washed your brain’ trending on Twitter? Disconcerting as #TheImposter may be, the level of intelligence on display is astounding. Reading about a time before the internet has a different impact.

The tweet read: “Watching #theimposter and I get his sister wanting to think it’s him, but all those officials didn’t question about his eye color changing?” To which a third person has been added. An additional commenter remarked, “Well, this is bonkers,” while a third added, “Just when you think you can’t see anything crazier on Netflix. Take a look at #TheImposter.

Another confused person weighed in, saying, “#theimposter has had to be the most idiotic, bizarre chain of events. The poor boy was never located, and it’s unlikely that the truth will ever be revealed. The Imposter is straightforward to watch if Twitter has persuaded you to give it a shot. Netflix users can see the movie immediately.
