    Clueless. I have no shame in admitting that it's one of my guiltiest of pleasures.

    Imposter

    I saw, "Imposter", last night. It purports to be about an American family who were fooled into thinking a French man was their lost child. And the family were presented as dumb and perhaps homicidal. But the reality was the French man was an accomplished confidence man who had carried out this confidence trick many times before.

    It's easy to be fooled by a confidence trickster because we are able to trust most of the people most of the time, and the confidence trickster plays on our trust.

    I mean, look around us, both astology and mbti are confidence tricks, yet we have day after day new people falling for them.

    So I think the American family in, "Imposter", were deeply grieving the loss of their son, and this was exploited by the French confidence trickster.

    They were also dumb, though. It was screamingly obvious that he was someone else.

    They had been searching and searching for years for their lost child, and here he was on the phone. They wanted him to be their lost child, he was even coached to be their lost child. And he was practised, for many time before he impersonated a lost child. It was the perfect storm - the grief, the loss, the longing perfectly met by the practised confidence man.

    The movie itself though played a confidence trick on us. The movie appealed to our vanity, "How could they be so dumb", we thought, "We would never be that dumb. We are much brighter than they are".

    And then the movie added injury to insult - and not content with parading the family to world as unbelievably dumb, they were paraded as murderers of their lost child. Even though there was no evidence whatsoever.

    We were the ones subject to a confidence trick by this movie - we were made complicit in a cruel libel of this family. And how we kept saying to ourselves, "How dumb they are". But how dumb and cruel we are to be taken in by this shallow confidence trick of a movie.

    Screamingly obvious! I don't share your view.

    Let's agree to disagree, after all they are only points of view.

    Saw Olympus Has Fallen. It's what the last Die Hard should have been. And there were some instances where the CG blood actually looked good.
