Directed by Wendell B. Harris, Jr. | 1989
"One of the ten best films of the decade."
—L.A. Weekly

This stylistically audacious black comedy won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize and has been called “one of the most provocative and adventurous American movies” (Time Out London) of its era. Deploying a grab bag of Godardian narrative tricks, Harris relays the outlandish (and true) exploits of Douglas Street (played by the director), an African-American con artist who successfully impersonated a Time magazine reporter, a Yale student, and a surgeon.
