This film is based loosely on the life of an extraordinary con-artist. Good jobs are hard to come by for black young men in Detroit, so he attempts to get ahead by successfully posing as an attorney, a Time magazine correspondent, a practicing surgeon and a French foreign-exchange student.

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

A disarming, disturbing, elusive, and profound meditation on personal identity.

This troubling biopic, based on the amazing but true story of a black con artist -- is a flawed but brilliantly thought provoking adventure in filmmaking.
