Impostor, based encouragingly on a short story by the great Philip K. Dick, zaps the spy game into the future. It's 2079, and the world, at war with aliens for more than ten years, needs scientist Spencer Olham (Gary Sinise) to protect it from nuclear and biological weapons. But is Spencer who he says he is? Even his wife (Madeleine Stowe) has doubts. The film raises timely questions about warfare and surveillance, but director Gary Fleder (Don't Say a Word) pushes the same old cliches in Blade Runner packaging.

    “Stillness Is the Move”

    Dirty Projectors | 2009

    A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
