CAST: WENDELL B. HARRIS JR.
L. A. Weekly called this grimly funny American independent treasure “one of the ten best films of the decade.” Based on a true story, it’s a singular, stylishly constructed tale of Doug Street, a Detroit man who, unsatisfied with his life, becomes a con artist impersonating, variously, a reporter, a surgeon, a lawyer, and more. A great work of both allegory and realism, Chameleon Street won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in 1990.
Screens as a part of In the Year of the Grifter.
