Description

A carefully crafted, open-to-everything mixture of live-wire reality and controlled narrative, Medium Cool is the debut fiction feature of Haskell Wexler, who had already established himself as one of Hollywood’s premiere cinematographers in the post-studio-system-era on such films as Elia Kazan’s America, America and Mike Nichols’ Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. In 1968, he hurled himself into the tear-gas of the cultural-political moment. The result was, alongside Bonnie and Clyde and Easy Rider, a seminal early work of what came to be known as “the New Hollywood”. Eureka Entertainment to release Haskell Wexler’s MEDIUM COOL, a penetrating look at America’s continuing fascination with sensationalism and violence during a turbulent era, on Blu-ray in a Dual Format edition on 27 July 2015 as part of the award winning Masters of Cinema Series.
