The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin

DVD - 2017
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Jennifer Kroot's documentary about the creator of Tales of the city moves nimbly between playful and poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. Maupin offers a disarmingly frank look at the journey that took him from the jungles of Vietnam to the bathhouses of '70's San Francisco to the front line of the American culture war.

This is a funny, frank and delightful profile of this influential and entertaining writer!

Yes, I enjoyed Maupin's Tales of the City, but even more you should ask Maupin about Fake News - - as one of Nixon's dirty tricks writers, before he went straight [in journalism, that is and one hopes], Maupin knows Fake News from waaaaay back, although the beginning even predates him. [For that you'd need to ask Dan Rather, Jim Lehrer, Tom Braden, Pat Buchanan, the O'Leary boys and a host of others.]
