Critic Reviews of "F for Fake"Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 11, 2015
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 PostOctober 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 OutOctober 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 YorkerOctober 11, 2015
F for Fake is as grand, multitudinous, and original as Welles himself.Kevin Thomas Los Angeles TimesOctober 11, 2015
Welles stretches his material and his legend just about as thin as possible in this tedious treatise on truth and illusion.Variety Staff VarietyMarch 26, 2009
An intriguing, enjoyable look at illusion in general and his own, Clifford Irving's and De Houry's dealing with it in particular.Clancy SigelOctober 11, 2015
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 FilmOctober 11, 2015
A mischievous mash of mock-doc, magic show, lecture and comedy.Emma Simmonds The Arts DeskOctober 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 sbs.com.auOctober 11, 2015
A buoyant, delightfully playful Orson Welles exposes the artifice of film in his 1975 head scratcher, F For Fake.Amber Wilkinson Eye for FilmOctober 11, 2015
Like every good magic show, there's much more here than first meets the eye.
