F FOR FAKE
F For Fake (French: Vérités et Mensonges) is the last principal film achieved by Orson Welles. At the beginning released in 1974, it concentrates on the racontage of Elmyr de Hory, and of his career as a professional forger of art. The history of Hory is used as context with a research on natures of the occupation of author and with an authenticity rapids and curving, as well as the base of the value of Article.
Far from serving as documentary traditional on Elmyr de Hory, the film also incorporates the companion Oja Kodar, notorious of Welles, 'hoax-biographer' Clifford Irving, and Orson Welles himself, in an autobiographical role.
