This week’s film: F for Fake (1973), was his last completed movie until this year’s The Other Side of the Wind (which spent four decades in post-production limbo and which is now due for release in November).
F for Fake is a documentary that only Welles could produce, itself full of sleight of hand and trickery, dealing with art forgeries, fictional non-fiction literature and fake autobiographies. It focuses on the notorious art forger Elmyr de Hory and Elmyr’s biographer, Clifford Irving, who wrote the celebrated fraudulent Howard Hughes autobiography. It also covers the reclusive Hughes and Welles’ own career (which started with a faked resume and a phony Martian invasion). On the way, Welles plays a few tricks of his own on the audience.
