Trivia

The character of "Charles Higgam" is an obvious parody of the Anglo-Australian journalist Charles Higham, who wrote two defamatory books about Orson Welles (in one of which he complained about this parody). People connected with this film have also hinted that the character of "Juliet Rich' is an unflattering depiction of another Orson Welles attacker, film critic Pauline Kael. See more »

G is for Gradation
7 January 2006 | by (Virginia Beach) – See all my reviews

This last, lost film of Orson Welles may never be seen. It may remain as something that we imagine, and so be ever so much better than it probably is. If you haven't seen "F is for Fake," see it and be prepared for some of the most complex plotting and layered editing you will ever see. Yes, I mean ever.

This project was worked on in bits and pieces for years. We know a lot about it, how radical it was to be. How seriously Welles took it as a project. We know Oliver Stone thinks it too "experimental."

Supposedly, 50 minutes exists in edited form, edited by Welles. Quite apart from the difficulties of assembling the thing (a near impossibility it seems) there are legal problems that forbid it out of hand.

But I have seen two scenes from it, supposedly shown by Welles at an AFI tribute, I think for John Huston who is in the thing.

One scene is Huston and the obnoxious Bogdonavich surrounded by reporters and being questioned by Oja Kodar, his fake mistress from "fake." It is truly magnificent. A few minutes of tease. The surrounding reporters have dozens of cameras, including some movie cameras. The cuts we see are from those cameras, using all sorts of stock.

The second scene is a lovemaking in the front seat of a car. Some nudity. Some also marvelous editing but not so striking, because I think this sequence was shot by Gary Graver and if you have the time to survey his nudie and X-rated movies, you'll see a similar editing style when things get hot.

This may be the most interesting movie we never see.

Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.
