Mike Wallace is Here
94% on Rotten Tomatoes
This documentary offers an unflinching look at the legendary reporter, who interrogated the 20th century’s biggest figures in his fifty-plus years on air. His aggressive reporting style and showmanship redefined what America came to expect from broadcasters.
Unearthing decades of never-before-seen footage from the 60 Minutes vault, the film explores what drove and plagued Wallace, whose storied career was entwined with the evolution of journalism itself.
"fondly celebrates (his) life but also questions Wallace's influence on the quality of public discourse in modern media."
"A compulsively engrossing account of a career notable for its gutsy, confrontational attitude toward the power brokers in business and politics."
"As Belkin's brisk and compelling documentary fades to black, the director seems to hope that the Wallace quotation audiences cling to isn't one of his fanged questions, but his optimism for the profession to which he dedicated his life"
