F is for Friday.

The introduction to Orson Welles’ 1975 masterpiece, F For Fake. Watch it and love it. If you look hard enough, the entire thing is on youtube. The film is not just a brilliant tackle of forgery, fakery, conning and swindling, but also of art, in a lot of ways. “Almost every story is a kind of lie,” the film says, and then offers you a promise, further celebrating trickery. And the editing of this experimental essay is just brilliant. Give it a look.
