Like Someone In Love, named after Ella Fitzgerald's jazz standard, is a droll, elegant and playful film preoccupied with identities mistaken and assumed, laced with references to the films of Yasujiro Ozu. Akiko, a pretty and slightly distant sociology student works nights as a high- class escort. Instead of studying for her exams and meeting her grandmother, she reluctantly goes to the house of her latest client, retired sociology professor Takashi. The next morning, she allows him to give her a ride to university, crossing paths with her volatile boyfriend, Noriaki (Ryo Kase). The latter assume that the kind old man is Akiko's grandfather, thus allowing an odd role-playing routine to begin, until, perhaps, the hoax is discovered. After Certified Copy and Ten, Like Someone In Love offers, with pristine images and long takes off the streets of Tokyo at night, a new facet of Kiarostami's study of human relations and unforeseeable encounters.

ORSON WELLES’S DELIGHTFULLY SHIFTY DOCUMENTARY Trickery. Deceit. Magic. In F for Fake, a free‐form documentary by ORSON WELLES (Citizen Kane), the legendary filmmaker (and self‐described charlatan) gleefully re‐engages with the central preoccupation of his career: the tenuous line between illusion and truth, art and lies. Beginning with portraits of the world‐renowned art forger Elmyr de Hory and his equally devious biographer, Clifford Irving, Welles embarks on a dizzying journey that simultaneously exposes and revels in fakery and fakers of all stripes—not the least of whom is Welles himself. Charming and inventive, F for Fake is an inspired prank and a clever examination of the essential duplicity of cinema.
