    I'm in a state of complete awe and absolute wonder after watching this one and only film by Wendell B. Harris Jr., who also performs as the lead William Douglas Street in this true story about a black con-man in 1970s-1980s America. Harris delivers a performance on par of that with David Thewlis in Naked. The screenplay is witty and the whole thing is just mesmerizing. A stone cold masterpiece that has been forgotten by the public.
