"To testify what we had in us..."

 F for Fake for me was not about trickery and truth, it was about a search for legitimacy and fulfillment for an artists work.  The most powerful part of F for Fake is Orson Welles' montage about Chartres cathedral..."one anonymous glory of all things."  Orson Welles demonstrates that in our societies hurried attempt to attach our name to our works we have forgone the opportunity to create art as an anonymous "celebration."
