F for Fake (1973)
»Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth«
Sly and entertaining, jittery and rhapsodic, intricate and many-layered – a very tongue-in-cheek pondering on the elusivity of truth.
Relying too heavily on common knowledge of the events depicted, at times making it unnecessarily hard to follow for at least this viewer. Nevertheless brilliant, and in my book.
