Medium Cool (Criterion) back to product details

More relevant than ever...

...but sadly dated in pace and appearance. A morality tale centering on a less-than-moral character played naturally by the inimitable Robert Forster. If you're interested in Wexler, the art of media manipulation,or you would like to see a great set of rhetoric from the 'inner city' versus the flighty press, then rent this one.

The Best Film Ever about the Battle of Chicago, 1968 (i.e. the riots started by the police during the massive protests against The War during the Democratic National Convention - I will never forget my mother's shock at watch Walter Cronkite ranting, pissed as hell after his comrade, Dan Rather, was beat up by Godfather (and Mayor) Richard Daley's thugs). A great statement on the power of the media and it's abuse. A love story. A wonderful music score by the ever-so-overlooked and dearly missed Mike Bloomfield. Highly Recommended!
