Samantha Bee and Patton Oswalt Take an Orson-Welles-F-For-Fake Angle When Discussing the Hoax That Is Crisis Pregnancy Centers
We’re not exactly sure who on the Full Frontal with Samantha Bee writing staff is or are cineaste(s), but we really dig what they’re doing. Already, they’ve made a great Werner Herzog style piece on Jeb Bush.
Their latest piece sharply debunks “Crisis Pregnancy Centers”, which falsely parade around as places that you might be able to get an abortion. That got cleverly framed around a riff on Orson Welles’ fantastic meta-documentary about grifters, F For Fake.
On top of that, they got one the biggest cineastes of them all, Patton Oswalt, to play Welles’ role.
