Netflix Streaming is the streaming video service ready to shoot several thousand movies onto your TV and/or computer screen. The film selection is a gloriously random array of "Hollywood hits!," beloved classics, and off-brand delights. For the Slog Netflix Streaming Movie Club, we'll all watch the same film on Netflix Streaming, then discuss it here on Slog.
Hot on the heels of the highly rewarding TV movie Someone I Touched comes the second installment of the Slog Netflix Streaming Movie Club. Our second film: The Imposter, the deeply intriguing 2011 documentary about an insane real-life mystery involving a 13-year-old boy who vanishes in Texas and shows up three years later in Spain, looking different and speaking with an accent. It's an amazing story, one that blew minds at last year's Seattle International Film Festival and was previously the subject of an essay in The New Yorker. What makes the documentary special (besides the amazing source material): Unlike in The New Yorker, we get to see the faces of the central characters, which is crucial to the mind-fuckery.
You can watch The Imposter anytime you want on Netflix Streaming, and we will be discussing it here on Slog this coming Monday at 11 am PST.
