  • Told in a flashback, this film is based on the life story of an extremely intelligent young black man with a ruthlessly sardonic sense of humor. William Douglas Street is tired. He's grown weary of living with his parents, working in his father's business, dull evenings spent with drunken co-workers and of being the object of societal suspicion. So he retreats into the recesses of his mind where a wild imagination makes anything and everything possible. But when this native son starts to externalize his insanely subversive fantasies, real trouble begins.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A dynamite debut....Both savagely funny and poignant..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Serious and funny....Both breezy and dark..."
    New York Times

    "...Harris has a rich, uninflected voice plus a strong, comforting presence....[He] is a talent to watch..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Mr. Harris's film overflows with a sense of language as a deadly weapon."
    New York Times

    "It's a true story, and considerably more provocative than Spielberg's CATCH ME IF YOU CAN....Harris is a sophisticated editor and his performance has presence and shading..."
