Highly educational and informative
18 June 2003 | by wingboy696See all my reviews

This documentary about Gore Vidal was excellent. I knew very little about Vidal, so this was a great introduction to his life and wit. The film did a good job of setting forth his political philosophy and worldview, and I left the auditorium thinking that I would like to learn even more about Vidal and to delve into his historical novels. Overall, it is highly recommended.
