Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia
Though far from as prominent outside of North America as in his native USA, few would contest Gore Vidal's status as one of the leading American intellectuals of his time. As an author, screenwriter, essayist, political commentator, cultural critic and occasional actor, Vidal (1925-2012) was a much respected public figure for what seemed like a lifetime. In THE UNITED STATES OF AMNESIA, we meet this intelligent, witty and opinionated man through a series of interviews on subjects such as politics, literature, history and his own remarkable life.
