Surprising ‘Thrillumentary’ blends confusing events with mere amusement

After seen the The Imposter, it’s eay to kick start the old discussion about objectivity with documentary filmmaking. Using actors, dramatic sound, provoking images and edits of eg. facial expressions out of their original context, the director is obviously directing you!

The imposter is an interesting and amusing film but does not fulfill what documentaries in general do for me: enlarging human knowledge and understanding or displaying problems and possible solutions.
Watch The Imposter and shake up you view on documentary making
