Best of Enemies

Directed by Morgan Neville, Robert Gordon
2015, 88min

 

The art of political debate reached sublimely rancorous new heights when conservative William F. Buckley, Jr. and liberal Gore Vidal covered the 1968 Republican and Democratic National Conventions for ABC. Amid the decade’s escalating culture wars, two of America’s foremost intellectuals trained their rapid-fire wits and patrician accents on the hot-button issues of the day, resulting in the most venomous verbal duel in broadcast history. Mixing archival footage, juicy biographical detail, and reflections from Dick Cavett, Christopher Hitchens, and others, this briskly paced documentary revisits the pop-culture watershed that spawned our age of polarized punditry. A Magnolia Pictures release.
