  • A solid piece of cultural investigation built around a man who helped write history while it happened.

  • 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.

    Aug 7, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The film deftly weaves news and interview clips from Wallace's half-century on TV with the times he himself answered questions as tough as those he asked, fleshing out one of the country's last formidable journalists.

    Aug 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a time capsule - an expertly crafted time capsule - of an astonishing career.

    Aug 2, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Belkin's portrait evokes the spirit of a typical Wallace interview: hard-hitting and unflinching in pursuit of the truth.

  • Watching Belkin's documentary, one realizes how much better Wallace was at playing Mike Wallace than any actor could be.
