Best of Enemies

Rated R 87 min. 2015

The televised debates between conservative Republican icon William F. Buckley and liberal Democrat iconoclast Gore Vidal during the 1968 conventions are the fulcrum of this absorbing retrospective. Both disagree, and are disagreeable. While their verbal jousting recalls a bygone era of intelligent political discourse, their personal animus, which shatters the erudite veneer, predicts today’s clamorous punditry.
