Reality and artifice, truths and lies, the means and the ends - these are the poles traversed by Orson Welles in his landmark examination of the nature of authenticity and artistic essence: F for Fake. Described by Welles as "a new kind of film", F for Fake - a.k.a. Fake!, a.k.a About Fakes, a.k.a.? ("Question Mark") - is a prism of a movie, a kaleidoscope in which fiction, documentary, and the poetic essay interlock, fragment, and recombine to form one of the most entertaining and profound works in all of cinema. Exhilarating, hilarious, and marvelously idiosyncratic, F for Fake comes to us from that late period of Orson Welles' cinema which, although perhaps less widely known than his Hollywood years, nevertheless found one of the movies' greatest masters at the top of his powers.
