MIKE WALLACE'S BIOPIC: "THERE'S NOTHING TO REFLECT UPON!?"
Avi Belkin 's documentary, "Mike Wallace Is Here" (2019) gives background making history of the investigative journalist, Mike Walkace. It follows in no real order, countless archival footage of interviews with celebrities, artists, poltical figures and even a thirty-something Donald Trump!
As a documentary, there is any real breakthrough, but having behind the scene, shows off a candid Wallace is a treat. It tries to present a timeline from his early days from radio to pioneering TV shows like"Night Beat" and "The Mike Wallace Show" to CBS's "Sixty Minutes" fame.
Wallace aa the subject himself has donemany interviews giving moments of inversion. For example, he responded in one of his interviews: "there's nothing to reflect upon" as asked when is it time to retire from TV. Also when asked in another interview, about what is feels about US and media of today. He stated "its getting worse" due to today's heavy saturation of media news figures, produces a sense of mistrust: who's telling the "truth"?
This 1h and 30min features aside from Mike Wallace, interviewees from Johnny Carson, Mickey Cohen, Bette Davis to Oprah Winfrey! One's of its higlights is when this documentary focuses on the infamous law suit threat from a major tobacco corporation, ironic considering that Wallace, in his early days promoted cigarette products!
