10-02-2018 12:00:00 10-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York F for Fake | 5:00 PM In this most meta of Orson Welles's films, legerdemain and forgery serve as metaphors for art-making. Art forger Elmyr de Hory and his biographer Clifford Irving provide momentum to the film's investigative drive, while thespian-magician Welles soliloquizes at interludes on the deceit that lies at the heart of creation. There is no question that we are watching a film "about trickery, fraud, and lies," as Welles tells us by way of introduction. The freewheeling stylistic tendencies evident throughout Welles's career find their apogee here in F FOR FAKE, a film equal parts gamboling and lucid. Welles, who had by this point given so much of himself to film, returns in front of the camera to perform his final balancing act. F FOR FAKE is a visual feast as well as an illuminating meditation on cinema's inherent deceit. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=279640 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
