    One of my all time favorites. A brilliant look at art, lies, forgery, truth, cinema and acting. Absolute masterpiece and a brilliant end to one of the most brilliant directorial careers of all time. 8 years 11 months ago

    An experimental documentary that explores the nature of art and forgeries. Through a blend of documentary footage and scripted drama, Orson Welles weaves a fascinating movie that delves into some famous fakers and asks "but is it art?" Exit Through the Gift Shop owes a debt of Gratitude to Mr. Welles. 2 years 5 months ago
