Chartres

In the comments, Alpheus mentioned probably the most memorable scene from F for Fake:


What struck FLG about this scene was that it didn't suck. Most times when directors get philosophical it gets really shitty really fast. It feels like a bad first semester freshman Philosophy 101 paper. I didn't get that from Welles. Then again, unlike most people, Welles was a fucking modern genius.

It’s no small thing to have that voice grace the soliloquy on the cathedral.

F For Fake also a favorite of mine.
