Steal only from the best.

Tony Zhou has quickly become a favorite here at Metafilter for his video essays on film techniques. His latest work is part editing class / part confessional on the subject of video essays themselves. And it all involves Star Wars, South Park and, most of all, Orson Welles' "F for Fake" (previously and previously).

His video essay on what Fincher *doesn't* do when presented with a basic two heads talking scene was a real Peeking Behind The Curtain moment.

The best being Kyle Kallgren of Brows Held High fame who did a video on F for Fake a month ago? ;)
(Interesting coincidence.)

F for Fake is great, by the way, watch it if you get the chance to!

I really could do without the South Park comparison in this latest one.

I had just bought and watched F for Fake a couple weeks before this video dropped so it really dovetailed well with my own thinking.

Just re-watched F For Fake last weekend, love it.
And I agree Kyle Kallgren's video on F For Fake is even better!
