Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia

***1/2 A fairly typically put-together video-doc (the music is ridiculous), but Mr. Vidal, the greatest of all American walking contradictions, is "on" as ever, and what he has to say remains petrifyingly, disinterestedly astute; calmly devastating in its observant accuracy; and worryingly on point.
