ORSON WELLES'S DELIGHTFULLY SHIFTY DOCUMENTARY Trickery. Deceit. Magic. In F for Fake, a freeform documentary by ORSON WELLES (Citizen Kane), the legendary filmmaker (and selfdescribed charlatan) gleefully reengages with the central preoccupation of his career: the tenuous line between illusion and truth, art and lies. Beginning with portraits of the worldrenowned art forger Elmyr de Hory and his equally devious biographer, Clifford Irving, Welles embarks on a dizzying journey that simultaneously exposes and revels in fakery and fakers of all stripesnot the least... of whom is Welles himself. Charming and inventive, F for Fake is an inspired prank and a clever examination of the essential duplicity of cinema.
