This movie blew my mind all the way to the end .Best doc i have EVER! watched in my life.Rarely see cinematic docs and will recommend this to anyone for the sheer suspense created although ending was dragged out to be much more than what it was but that aside.......mind blowing!!

Washington Post
What's most fascinating are the movie's larger questions about why some people tell impossible lies -- and why others believe them. Full Review
Calvin Wilson
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
One of the best films of the year. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
One of the most entertaining documentaries to appear since "Exit Through the Gift Shop," a film similarly obsessed with role playing and deception. Full Review
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
Blessed with an improbable-but-true story that functions on many ironic levels, this clever documentary ultimately conveys more about the complex American character - shifting between intimacy and criminality - than a whole shelf of fiction films. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
This is a train wreck you think you see coming, but no matter how prepared you are the nature and extent of the damage will overwhelm you. Full Review
