65) F for Fake (1973)

65) F for Fake (1973) Dir: Orson Welles Date Released: February 25, 1977 Date Seen: February 18, 2012 Rating: 4.5/5

I love this film because it seems to have been exclusively been assembled by Welles's hulking ego. It's such an ego trip, such an absorbing long con. I can't help but admire its intricate and far-flung free associations. Werner Herzog and Banksy both wish they could make a speculative essay-doc that's this great.
