Welles’ late masterpiece is one of the greatest essay films ever made. Taking as his starting point the scandal of Irving’s bogus biography of art forger de Hory, he interweaves footage shot by documentarist Francis Reichenbach with new material of his own to create a wonderfully wise and witty meditation on art and authorship, truth and falsehood, film and storytelling. Sheer magic from beginning to brilliant end.
