Trump Is For Fake

February 12, 2017

Film. Illusion. Dream. Nightmare.

Over the years as a lifelong “student” of film, through countless viewings of Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane, I’ve not only enjoyed but continued to learn about film craft, whether through Kane’s cinematography, sound design, art direction, or editing. Each viewing exposes me to another facet of Welles’ achievement.

Now comes a big surprise for a new century. Citizen Kane is purportedly Donald Trump’s favorite film. Just take that in. Imagine if you will, watching Kane through Trump’s eyes.

I also wondered if Trump knows of Welle’s final film essay, F For Fake? Up in his tacky tower, has Donald watched Welle’s stew of trickery and fraud, prestidigitation, forgery, and fakery?
