Review: Best of Enemies, 2015, dir. Morgan Neville & Robert Gordon

Buckley against Gore Vidal in televised debates more than 40 years ago. Did ABC know what they were doing when they staged that infamous verbal sparring match? Could they have predicted the far-reaching impact of their mad business stratagem?” (Via Paste Magazine.)
