This documentary, directed by Robert Gordon and Morgan Neville, details the historic 1968 televised debates between staunch conservative William F. Buckley Jr. and the liberal writer, Gore Vidal. Firmly planted in their respective ideologies, the men often fought bitterly in their attempts to discredit each other, nearly coming to blows on more than one occasion. The film delves into their personal histories, mining for clues as to how the contrary political leanings of these two brilliant but complicated men evolved.
