‘The 50 Year Argument’ on HBO

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Martin Scorsese and his longtime documentary collaborator David Tedeschi, The 50 Year Argument rides the waves of literary, political, and cultural history as charted by The New York Review of Books. Provocative, idiosyncratic and incendiary, the film weaves rarely-seen archival material, contributor interviews, excerpts from writings by such long-standing contributors as James Baldwin, Gore Vidal, and Joan Didion along with original verité footage filmed in the Review’s West Village offices. Co-produced with the BBC’s award-winning Arena and shaped by Scorsese’s vivid filmmaking, The 50 Year Argument captures the power of ideas in influencing history.
