Winner of seven festival prizes and nominated for an Academy Award, The Most Dangerous Man in America is a remarkably relevant film. It revisits the Vietnam War, a pivotal point in American history, and presents the reactions of Washington and the news media to disclosures of shocking truths about the War and the presidencies of Johnson and Nixon. The film is very much about the inevitable conflicts between press and power—and how, under the First Amendment, the country has navigated those conflicts. It's difficult not to make comparisons to the present, when it's difficult to imagine journalists and networks taking such courageous stands. But as the film demonstrates, it can be done.
