IU Cinema presents: F for Fake (1973)

In F for Fake, Orson Welles portrays himself as a magician who can’t be trusted. It’s been called a pseudodocumentary, which is not entirely fair or accurate. Instead, it’s best described as a cinematic sleight of hand, a documentary that becomes something else entirely. Henry Jaglom, Welles’s friend and sometime collaborator, calls it “the most autobiographical of his films” A masterpiece is a masterpiece, he argues, and the movie does not need him to champion it. “Ultimately, it is about the creative act and the confession that all creative acts are fraudulent,” – taken from The Best Films You’ve Never Seen, by Robert K. Elder. The screening and visit is cosponsored by the Lilly Library. (35mm. 89 89 min. Rated PG.) Author Robert K. Elder is scheduled to introduce and sign copies of his latest book.
