F for Fake

France, Iran, West Germany 1973 | 89 minutes | English, French, Spanish | Hebrew, English subtitles

Orson Welles’ last film is built around material shot by documentarist Francois Reichenbach, about the Howard Hughes mystery, the forger Elmer de Hory and the fake biography written by Clifford Irving. It soon becomes clear, however, that Welles himself is the central character.
