OT: Movie - The Imposter

Just watched this and was wondering if anybody else has seen it. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it. Fascinating.

Bike content. Anybody remember the story of James Hogue and Dave Tesch???

I wanted to see this movie, but missed it on the big screen. Where did you watch it (Netflix/amazon)?

On Demand Comcast... Watching this guy, tell his story of deception, etc... It made me wonder what if Lance told his whole story... Would he be as matter as fact as this? Would he be as calculating as this? As cold?

Hate to make the Lance comparison here, but the whole thing go me thinking about how some people want to believe so much that facts don't matter.

See the movie. It will definately leave you bewildered!

But WHY? What's he get out of these impersonations? He wasn't trying to ingratiate himself with rich people like that Six Degrees of Separation guy. I mean, 4 months in a backwoods Texas trailer kneeling in front of a TV?

I am reminded of the Alfred Pennyworth line...

Why?



"... Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn."
