Haskell Wexler United States, 1969

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Medium Cool

Few filmmakers, not even Kiarostami, have so deftly dealt with the issue of how real or how active cinema can be. This one stands as a troubling challenge: in a society where images are routinely and apathetically created to be consumed, will the process end with consumption, or will you do something? 4 out of 5 stars.
