“Any American who is prepared to run for president should automatically by definition be disqualified from ever doing so.” The blustery and brilliant Gore Vidal never shied away from slinging his stinging opinions about government, his contemporaries, and the American people in general. Now, less than a year after his death, this wholly entertaining tribute brings the lionhearted man back to the screen. Anchored by intimate, one-on-one interviews with the man himself, commentary by those who knew him best, and loads of footage from his legendary on-air career, this film reminds us why Vidal will forever stand as one of the most dazzling and fearless critics of our time.
