  • Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia

    Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia 2013

    ★★★½ Added

    Very decent documentary about American novelist, essayist, screenwriter and "celebrity intellectual", Gore Vidal. The film uses a sort of standard template similar to something you'd get on PBS's "American Masters" series but it has a good variety of guests (especially interesting the section about his fallout with the late socialist turned pro-Bush neo conservative, Christopher Hitchens) and some great archive stuff with Vidal himself. A great, brutally funny, witty and intelligent man, the film does him justice.

    Somehow has worse effects than the original films (which to be fair are pretty decent), in general it's a soulless, empty film without any charm or excitement.

    Manipulative, boring, emotionally simplistic drama directed by Steven Spielberg. The film is way too long, as usual with directors like Spielberg, he thinks he is making an epic for the sake of making an epic so it's very long winded. I'm something of an animal lover, but i gotta be honest, i didn't give a fuck about this fella or his horse.
