Directed by Dick Fontaine | 1968
“Offers a fascinating demonstration of how all versions of an event — no matter how conscientious or ‘truthful’ — are none the less versions, and potential grist for any number of independent mills.”
—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

This portrait of iconic novelist Mailer considers the man from all sides—as a writer, filmmaker, media figure, and political dissident—showing Mailer directing (and acting in) Beyond the Law, discussing his book Why Are We in Vietnam?, and being arrested during the October 1967 March on the Pentagon.
