The Story of a Cheat ★★★★

Guitry must have been huge influence on Welles - mostly VO'ed con memoir. Somewhere between Trouble in Paradise and Citizen Kane/Ambersons this is a precocious little tale full of fun anecdotes and cinematic tricks. I'll enjoy ending a movie one day with the protagonist revealing his current occupation at the end and telling a character and the audience to fuck off FIN
