Walter Mencken 11:31 a.m., Feb. 1
Last night we saw The Imposter, the docudrama about Frédéric Bourdin, a missing boy, and the Barclay family of San Antonio, Texas. The trailer is quite amazing, dark, and suspenseful, but the film itself though fluid is very slow. It's like watching a true crimes documentary on cable, but better quality and minus the host voiceover (though voiceover is used). At any rate, there are movies for every mood.
Tonight, Hillcrest Landmark Theatre (3965 Fifth Ave) will feature Robot & Frank, The Intouchables, Killer Joe, The Imposter, and 2 Days in New York. Admission is $8.50-10.50. See the site for showtimes.
