Told through Scorsese's inimitable and energetic documentary style, this provocative film explores the power of ideas in shaping history. The film weaves rarely seen archival footage of cultural icons, newly filmed interviews with many of the Review’s current contributors with original footage reflecting the humming, restless energy of the paper's brilliant and charismatic editor Robert Silvers at work in the Review’s West Village offices.The film will be followed by a Q+A with one of the celebrated journalists who is featured in the documentary.
