Gore Vidal: United States of Amnesia

About Gore Vidal: United States of Amnesia

Opening in select theaters May 23rd and VOD May 29th

Controversial, brilliant, and ever entertaining, the late Gore Vidal recalls his remarkable life as America’s most outspoken intellectual superstar in this illuminating, up close and personal documentary. Through intimate interviews with Vidal himself, as well as friends and colleagues like Tim Robbins and Christopher Hitchens, the film reveals how the charismatic cultural critic used the media to wage blistering attacks on hypocrisy and establishment politics. Vidal is witty, unsentimental, and enlightening as ever in this definitive portrait of one of the most fascinating personalities of the last century.
