F For Fake - Criterion Collection

This will surely be the DVD release of the year. Criterion has finally brought to DVD a wonderful transfer of Orson Welles' most playfully masterful film, the essay-film, F For Fake. Jonathan Rosenbaum's liner notes are, as is typical to him, insightful and informative.

The extras are all top-notch, but the commentary track featuring Oja Kodar and Gary Graver, and the documentary on Welles' unfinished films, One-Man Band, is a welcome addition.

This has long been one of my favorite Welles films...now I feel as if I've seen it anew.
