The late lamented Robert Forster has one of his greatest roles in Medium Cool as a television news camera operator who, shooting in Chicago during the summer of the Democratic National Convention, experiences a political epiphany. Shot around the real-life DNC riots and featuring footage that riskily integrates the actors into the actual chaos, Haskell Wexler’s film provocatively intermingles documentary and fiction elements, in so doing encapsulating something of the street-level turmoil of the day. Introduced by John Sayles, director of Matewan and Lone Star
