"In his film, THE POET AND THE CON, Eric Trules has immersed us, layer through layer, into the center of a filmic poem, at once dramatic and confessional, poignant and visceral. Like a good poem, it is multi-valenced at its core, with insights that instruct and truths that incite. An engaging course-study of a poet-filmmaker's exploration into his own personal culture of paradox."

Dr. James Ragan, Dean, USC's Professional Writing Program
