  • Critic Reviews of "F for Fake"

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    F For Fake is minor Welles, the master idly tuning his instrument while the concert seems never to start again. But it's engaging and fun, and it's astonishing how easily Welles spins a movie out of next to nothing.

    Gary Arnold Washington Post
    October 11, 2015

    The result is a curious, unsatisfactory pastiche of documentary tidbits acquired from Reichenbach and speculative filler supplied by Welles himself.

    Tom Huddleston Time Out
    October 11, 2015

    For all its nods, winks and witty asides, it's a richly personal work, picking over the questions every creative artist must eventually ask: Am I 'for real'? Does it matter? And what is all this work worth, anyway?

    Richard Brody New Yorker

    F for Fake is as grand, multitudinous, and original as Welles himself.

    Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times

    Welles stretches his material and his legend just about as thin as possible in this tedious treatise on truth and illusion.

    An intriguing, enjoyable look at illusion in general and his own, Clifford Irving's and De Houry's dealing with it in particular.

    I enjoyed every dubious minute of this bit of hanky-panky.

    Wendy Ide Times (UK)
    October 11, 2015

    The last film to be completed by Orson Welles is also probably his most challenging. A tricksy combination of documentary, discourse and sleight of hand, F for Fake is as elusive as it is playful.

    Kevin Harley Total Film

    A mischievous mash of mock-doc, magic show, lecture and comedy.

    Emma Simmonds The Arts Desk
    October 11, 2015

    If Citizen Kane is testament to a young man's genius then F For Fake is testament to a veteran's rebellious spirit and wicked sense of humour.

    Simon Foster

    A buoyant, delightfully playful Orson Welles exposes the artifice of film in his 1975 head scratcher, F For Fake.

    Like every good magic show, there's much more here than first meets the eye.
