A good movie

Somehow, I have actually seen this flick in the movie theater (of course, not when it was released because I wasn’t even born). Anyway, at the time, I had no idea what to expect from this flick but since I was a huge fan of Orson Welles, I was really eager to check it out. Honestly, I have always been surprised by the fact that this movie is often considered as a ‘documentary’. I mean, sure,... read more

Description: The final directorial project the legendary Orson Welles completed during his lifetime, F for Fake is less a documentary than an example of cinematic free association on the topic of trickery. Much of the film is in fact drawn from other sources, most notably an unfinished documentary by Francois Reichenbach on the notorious Elmyr de Hory, whose extremely skillful forgeries of famous paintings caused scandals among art collectors and experts. In an additional bit of irony, de Hory's interviewer is author Clifford Irving, who became infamous due to a forgery of his own: a falsified autobiography of Howard Hughes. Welles openly re ...

"26.3. Pienen pakettiauton kokoinen Orson Welles pohtii totuuden ja huijauksen yhteyttä trollailemalla ympäri kaupunkia viitassa ja lierihatussa. Taideväärentäjään liittyvät jutut ovat ihan ok, Welles boustailemassa aivan mahtavaa katsottavaa ja muu elokuva aivan helvetin tylsä ja puuduttava. Lopputulos on tavallaan mielenkiintoinen."
