I believe Orson Welles is a director who delves into the question of truth and lies. Wells, who It seems like a Nietzscheist who was not sure about himself. Welles saw the world as dominated by those who lie and fraud, not the real ones. But Wells wasn't the one who lamented or blamed it. Rather, It seems like Welles saw that the artistic ability to realize the will of life was not true, but came out falsely in the documentary or film. According to it, the truth itself was a fiction that witnessed a lie, was behind a lie, and provided a false alibi. The real people in his movie pair seedlings with them, lie together and make friends with them as traitors, without anyone knowing the bad guys, the frauders, the liars and the traitors themselves. .. The film "F For Fake by Orson Welles", which summarizes the whole world through his films, showed in art the relationship between model (truth) and copy (fake) in a "fake" documentary.
In the documentary, similar ideas of truth and lies are repeated. Real painters Raoul Defy, Pablo Picasso,Dongen, Derain, Braque, Henri Mattise, and Vlamink. An expert who knows to distinguish between these no different authenticity, which makes the Mosapum of the imitator Elmyr, who perfectly copies ㅡ, such as Picasso Bonnard and Maurice de Vlamink. The moment they declare their “imitations” genuine, the imitations become genuine and trade at high prices. According to Elmyr, everyone who declared his “imitations” as a genuine masterpiece confessed that he was an expert. Because he must refer to it when copying the real thing, because it was the standard (model) for the expert to judge the real thing. Guessing these series and complex relationships of model and copy, truth and lie, the relationship between Elmir and Picasso, which replicates Picasso's paintings, and the relationship between Picasso and Velázquez, influenced by Velázquez. It's a good relationship, and it's not easy to decide what kind of relationship is bad. Rather, not only art, but the whole life is not the truth and model as a futuristic projection of illusions and delusions, but rather the concreteness of the vital force that the truth parasitizes and comes to the fore and elucidates stools. This is the conclusion of Wells that lies and fiction dominate as a realization. Therefore, the question is not "truth or false?" But "what lies?"
At the end of "F for fake" Wells mentions Picasso and quotes a passage that is "estimated" for what he did: "Art is a lie, a lie that makes us realize the truth."
