Art forger Mark Landis does not lead a luxurious or glamorous life. His goal is not to earn millions, but to put his mark on history - to use the great arts and crafts supplies of his local Hobby Lobby to make Picassos indistinguishable from the originals. We follow him on his everyday adventures in his fancy car and priest costume. The film is a tenderly voyeuristic portrait of people living on the outskirts of the established social structure. Both unglamorous and engaging, this is an art documentary well worth your time.
