    F for Fake

    ★★★½

    F for Fake deserves ten rewatches for its sublimely unrelenting editing alone. It is masterfully put together - movement is constant on the screen and your eyes are always dazzled - but not by cheaply cutting away every second - simply by what's in the shot and where it's going.

    He laughed at nearly every line.

    The Golden Age of the Simpsons. Wow.
