Description

Few things are more entertaining and thought provoking than watching conservative celebrity William F. Buckley and liberal superstar Gore Vidal verbally spar like prima donna hell cats.

Co-directors Robert Gordon and Oscar® Winner Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom, MSPIFF 2013) take Buckley and Vidal’s iconic 1968 televised political coverage and elucidates between the lines of this fascinating, off-the-rails relationship and unprecedented moment in media. Best of Enemies is a memo of a bygone era, when intellectuals reigned supreme and news had daring pizzazz.
