A brilliant film essay that defies genre, "F for Fake" convinces audiences that the master Orson Welles could still make a one of a kind film even 30+ years after "Citizen Kane."

You kind of have to suspend all sense of linear thinking to get this very experiential documentary. Orson Welles is dissecting mise-en-scene and the cinematic concept of truth vs. fiction in a very fascinating and often very entertaining way. The film's definitely a headtrip, but a fun one that will prompt many rewatchings to grasp.
