Mike Wallace Is Here

MIFF 2019 AUDIENCE AWARD WINNER!

You could say that Mike Wallace invented the hard-nosed, take-no-prisoner style of TV news investigator/interviewer that’s practically de rigeur now. But Wallace was not ideological—though he did seem to be genuinely angry at times. And why not? There was a lot genuinely wrong, and Wallace seemed to find it all. A fascinating exposé of 60 Minutes’ fearsome newsman whose no-holds-barred journalistic style redefined what America has come to expect from news broadcasters, Mike Wallace Is Here is a riveting account of a man, a profession, a medium, and an era. PG-13. 96 Min.
