As someone who had heard of Susan Sontag,but didn't know a great deal about her.I found this documentary about her private and public life,very informative.I agree with the comments,that the film tended to dwell on her bisexuality and the controversies that surrounded her life.However,I do think that the film is a good starting point ,for anyone who is interested in a writer and thinker,who believed in free speech.
A thorough portrait of the literary critic laden with solid archival footage and impressive interviews with those near and dear to the writer (Harriet Sohmers Zwerling stole the show). I wish this doc dealt less with Sontag's sexuality and more with her work, mentorship, & ideological backpedaling. The omission of her juicy, short-lived beef with Adrienne Rich is a glaring one. Not a fan of Clarkson's voice.
