  • Featured Film: F for Fake (Criterion Collection)
  • Trickery. Deceit. Magic. In Orson Welles's free-form documentary F FOR FAKE, the legendary filmmaker (and self-described charlatan) gleefully engages the central preoccupation of his career -- the tenuous line between truth and illusion, art and lies.

    Beginning with portraits of world-renowned art forger Elmyr de Hory and his equally devious biographer, Clifford Irving, Welles embarks on a dizzying cinematic journey that simultaneously exposes and revels in fakery and fakers of all stripes -- not the least of whom is Welles himself. Charming and inventive, F FOR FAKE is an inspired prank and a searching examination of the essential duplicity of cinema.
