MEDIUM COOL

In Tribute to Haskell Wexler!

Screens in place of MATEWAN. Double Feature with CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND

(1969) dir Haskell Wexler w/Robert Forster, Verna Bloom, Peter Bonerz, Marianna Hill [111 min; Digital]
The apotheosis of Wexler’s career, MEDIUM COOL combines social commentary and documentary style with the taught character study of a television cameraman (Forster) shooting at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago.

“With its mix of fictional storytelling and documentary technique, [MEDIUM COOL] is a visceral cinematic snapshot of the era, climaxing with an extended sequence shot right in the middle of the riots surrounding the Convention. An inventive commentary on the pleasures and dangers of wielding a camera, Medium Cool is as prescient a political film as Hollywood has ever produced.” – The Criterion Collection
