F for Fake
Orson Welles and François Reichenbach's "F for Fake" (1974). Extremely meta history of hoaxing featuring art forger Elmyr de Hory. Some great footage of Welles wearing a cape and drinking wine in Ibiza. Cool soundtrack by Michel Legrand. You can watch it here, but it's such a beautiful film that I recommend the Criterion DVD. Have a good weekend!
