This bracing documentary on the life and times of America’s late “Naysayer-in-Chief” (1925-2012) has many of the attributes that made Gore himself such a magnetic public figure. It’s an opinionated, energetic, kaleidoscopic history of the 20th century as viewed by the ultimate insider turned pesky outsider -- a novelist, essayist, screenwriter, playwright, debater, and all-around political gadfly who was never at a loss for words. Filmmaker Nicholas Wrathall packs the film with multitudes of Gore’s career highlights, including his notorious verbal pie fight with William F. Buckley while they were covering the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago. A first-class profile of a unique American (89 min.).
