Summary

Title from container.

Originally produced as a documentary in 2013.

No twentieth-century figure has had a more profound effect on the worlds of literature, film, politics, historical debate, and the culture wars than Gore Vidal. Anchored by intimate one-on-one interviews with the man himself, Nicholas Wrathall's documentary is a portrait of the last lion of the age of American liberalism. Commentary blends with footage from Vidal's legendary on-air career to remind us why he will forever stand as one of the most brilliant and fearless critics of our time. Featuring candid vérité footage of Vidal in his final years, the film presents Vidal's unique and incisive overview of the current state of the Republic and the health of US democracy.
