Orson Welles' final film documents fraud and fakery through the lives of infamous fakers Elmyr de Hory and Clifford Irving, who made his name by selling forged works of art by painters like Picasso and Matisse.
F For Fake is minor Welles, the master idly tuning his instrument while the concert seems never to start again. But it's engaging and fun, and it's astonishing how easily Welles spins a movie out of next to nothing.
For all its nods, winks and witty asides, it's a richly personal work, picking over the questions every creative artist must eventually ask: Am I 'for real'? Does it matter? And what is all this work worth, anyway?
