    I am excited that Welles's absolutely sui generis examination of the con is available on Blu-ray.

    The last major film Orson Welles completed, "F for Fake" is a hidden, seldom seen (except by Welles fans, which I am happy to declare myself) seventies classic that examines truth and fiction in documentary. Welles's channels his ability to be ahead of the curve. The film has a dual focus: one upon art forger Elmyr de Hory's amazing career; and another bolstered by a then-timely portrait, ever skewed, of Howard Hughs's "hoax-biographer" Clifford Irving, who set in stone the image of Hugh's decline and fall as a hirsuite, bearded OCD-riddled oddity.

    For Welles's admirers, it seems there are those who love "Citizen Kane," and "The Magnificent Ambersons" and perhaps "Touch of Evil" only, and those who value "Chimes at Midnight," "Othello," and others that reveal an artist who had not peaked in his first efforts but continued to evolve throughout his amazing career.

    Like Gaddis's great, labyrinthine American novel, "The Recognitions," "F Is for Fake" addresses many of the same questions, at a small, breezy 87 minute pace, and served as the film I kept checking out from university libraries when I hauled around Gaddis's entertaining if massive sprawling tome of a novel.

    Fantastic movie brought to life by the best film transfers that only the people over at Criterion could offer.
