Critic Reviews for Con Artist
On the evidence of "Con Artist," a lively portrait of the enfant terrible in middle age, Mark Kostabi doesn't draw indifferent responses.
Michael Sladek's entertaining documentary portrait of one of the art world's most outrageous provocateurs.
The film gets at the pitiful need and loneliness that drives fame whores. Nevertheless, it remains most compelling when bursting Kostabi's self-important bubble.
At the film's heart lies the paradox: how can a con artist be conning people if he is freely admitting that is what he is doing?
Lays bare Kostabi's popularized thinking regarding branding and self-promotion, the impact of which can be glimpsed in the ways people these days jockey to make 'ex-reality show participant' a full-time occupation.
