F FOR FAKE

Interweaving anecdotes about the world's greatest art forger, Howard Hughes's hidden sandwiches, an entire period of lost Picasso works, his own War of the Worlds broadcast, and the anonymous creators of the Chartres Cathedral, Welles turns the movie into an elaborate illusion that speaks to Picasso's famous saying: "Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth."
