Library Journal - Library Journal
De Antonio (1919-1989) self-defined his work as "a history of the US in the Cold War." His first film, Point of Honor (1963), examined the 1954 Army-Mc-Carthy hearings, and later films covered the Vietnam conflict (In the Year of the Pig), Richard Nixon (Millhouse: A White Comedy), and the JFK assassination (Rush to Judgement). Kellner (Media Culture) and Streible (film studies, Univ. of South Carolina) have skillfully assembled one of the first monographs about the life and career of this political documentary filmmaker, and they have added and engaging 75-page biographical essay. They include interviews with and articles about the director, reviews and critical essays about the films, reminiscences by colleagues and friends, illustrations, an extensive bibliography, and a complete filmography. Unlike a majority of film books, this one will stimulate readers to view the subject's films. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.
