About the Movie

Mesmerizing and provocative, Con Man explores the remarkable life of James Arthur Hogue, a brilliant impostor who embraced the American art of self-invention, fabricated a spectacular series of fictional identities for himself, and successfully conned his way into Princeton University.


Customer Reviews




This movie was really interesting, this guy cons his way into Princeton, but the interviews with his fellow classmates and track teammates seems to suggest that he deserved to be there. There is a more relevant case, not included in this movie, in which a man conned his way into Harvard. Ultimately this movie is well paced and really fascinating.

Could Have Been Better

Interesting, but a bit dull documentary on James A. Hogue. Not very revealing on his motives, and I found this curious. In addition, the documentary is focused primarily on his fraudulent admission to Princeton University, yet Hogue committed other con-man type crimes not mentioned. I learned more by reading one page from the Time website. Not bad, just a bit boring.
