  • Worth seeing if you're interested in journalists, watching people give an interview...there are some really juicy and interesting clips regarding freedom of the press...

  • This film does not offer any actual conclusions, but it is an atmospheric immersion in the old, smoky and very male world of American TV journalism.

    May 29, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A little more air might have been welcome, but this remains a hugely entertaining film for anyone interested in the American way of communicating.

    May 29, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Terrific and informative.

    October 2, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A solid piece of cultural investigation built around a man who helped write history while it happened.

    August 10, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Belkin floats the notion that Wallace's sharp-tongued style paved the way for the lying loudmouths who now populate our fractured media landscape, but it feels like a half-hearted bid for contemporary relevance. At least his prickishness had purpose.

  • Avi Belkin's documentary tells its story entirely through archive footage, which proves both compelling and limiting.

    June 7, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's pure cinema: dramatic, ambiguous, devastating - and one more reason this particular film doesn't need to reference a fictionalised version of its own star's role in history.
