RADICAL WOLFE (Released In Theaters in USA 2023)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.4|5.0 Stars

 Radical Wolfe focuses on the adult career of the writer Tom Wolfe much more than on his complete life story. It focuses on the milestones of his prolific writing career and the waves he made with his choice of words on paper. By the end of the documentary, there is no doubt who Tom Wolfe is, but huge, unanswered questions remain: Why? How?  And out of so many talented journalists, what really defined Tom Wolfe as the single journalist and writer to gain distinction over other writers that may be much more talented than he?  If one has not read Tom Wolfe, this documentary can be a good introduction to the writer before getting to know him better through his writings.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. The documentary is quite thorough about Tom Wolfe’s adult career. Look forward to some interesting interviews with both persons who knew him and persons who appreciated his style.
