Aroview: Filmed against the backdrop of the Democratic National convention in 1968 Chicago, this remarkable directorial effort by renowned cinematographer Haskell Wexler is both technically expressive and rich in text, and captures the political and social unrest of the era with striking authenticity.
Following a detached TV news cameraman (Robert Forster) who becomes increasingly aware of the political ramifications of his work, media complicity, corruption and prejudice are just some of the then-timely issues that still retain relevance decades after it was made.

3 stars (Good Enough) Interesting combination of staged & real action. The opening & closing scenes complement each other well & are a good example of the subtle humour prevalent in the film.The film should not be ignored by anyone interested in the turmoil of 1968 in the USA.~tubbs
