Haskell Wexler Actor Himself 1 1000001
In 1968 Hollywood cameraman Haskell Wexler expressed his desire to "find some wedding between features and cinema-verite. I have very strong opinions about us and the world, and don't know how in hell to put them all in one basket." "Medium Cool" (USA/1969) was his solution, a tremendously original blend of fiction and documentary styles. British film scholar Paul Cronin examines the many disparate elements Wexler pulled together to make his picture. From the oratory of Chicago activist Jesse Jackson to Wexler's distribution battle with Paramount, we're given an interesting look at a complex film.
