William Buckley vs. Gore Vidal. 2 men. 10 debates. Television would never be the same. Best of Enemies is a behind-the-scenes account of the explosive 1968 televised debates between the liberal Gore Vidal and the conservative William F. Buckley Jr., and their rancorous disagreements about politics, God, and sex. Masterfully directed by Academy Award winner Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom, Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story) and Grammy Award winner Robert Gordon (Johnny Cash's America) Best of Enemies vividly portrays the two sides of politics that fought to claim America's future, through the vicious rivalry of two of the period's most gifted orators.
