Robert Anton Wilson - Cameras Don't Lie But Editing Can

Here, Robert Anton Wilson discusses the sneaky trickery of film editing used in Orson Welles' film, F For Fake. The same editing techniques were used in movies like Citizen Kane and Chimes At Midnight, revealing the fine line that can be drawn between art and lies, which is referenced by Welles himself in F For Fake but in a more enigmatic way. At any rate, the sheer ingenuity of the tricks used by Welles as described here is something to be appreciated in its own right.
