F FOR FAKE di Orson Welles

This short segment from Orson Welles' cinematic essay, F for Fake, may be the profoundest moment in cinema history. It is both uniquely moving, as well as stunningly deep philosophically---a truly rare cinematic combination. This clip should be required viewing, not only for every student of cinema, but for everyone who seeks an antidote to the world's increasing descent into cruelty and darkness. Here, Welles achieves the miraculous with amazingly simple means (note the lack of music as an emotional "guide", for example). God created Orson Welles...then broke the mold. Introduced by media psychologist, Dr. James N. Herndon.
