This film does not offer any actual conclusions, but it is an atmospheric immersion in the old, smoky and very male world of American TV journalism.

Terrific and informative.

A solid piece of cultural investigation built around a man who helped write history while it happened.

August 10, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Belkin floats the notion that Wallace's sharp-tongued style paved the way for the lying loudmouths who now populate our fractured media landscape, but it feels like a half-hearted bid for contemporary relevance. At least his prickishness had purpose.

The film deftly weaves news and interview clips from Wallace's half-century on TV with the times he himself answered questions as tough as those he asked, fleshing out one of the country's last formidable journalists.

This is a time capsule - an expertly crafted time capsule - of an astonishing career.
