      Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times On the evidence of "Con Artist," a lively portrait of the enfant terrible in middle age, Mark Kostabi doesn't draw indifferent responses. Rated: 3/5 Mar 31, 2011 Full Review Stephen Holden New York Times Michael Sladek's entertaining documentary portrait of one of the art world's most outrageous provocateurs. Rated: 3/5 Nov 12, 2010 Full Review Nick Schager Village Voice The film gets at the pitiful need and loneliness that drives fame whores.
