F for Fake ★★★★★

Even better than before! Cunfusing, but captaining. Straightforward, yet complex. Welles had control over his filmmaking abilities like few others here. The meticulous effort that must have gone in the script to be able to control when exacly the “twist” (no spoilers) would happen, and not have it feel cheesy, is beyond brilliant.

Citizen Kane is his masterpiece — no doubt about that— and is pure joy to watch. But, I seem to find the most pleasure out of this Welles masterpiece.
