Welles, Orson - F For Fake (1973) Rb (Criterion Collection Uk Import)
Releasedatum: 30 juli 2018

A collection of material brought together by master director Orson Welles, that serves to examine the idea of forgery and fakes. In it he features the work of forger Elmyr de Hory (who claims that most of the major collections of paintings in the world contain one of his fakes) and Clifford Irving (who wrote a fake autobiography of famous recluse Howard Hughes). There are stories of Welles' relationship with the granddaughter of a famous Yugoslav forger and personal reflections on the essence of artistic originality. Also featured are examples of fake and forgery from his own career (including the scandal provoking radio broadcast 'War of the Worlds').
