Article Excerpt:

Amircontinues his coverage of Toronto's Hot Docs festival.Will he spot any future Oscar nominees?

It is hard to imagine today that there was once an America where political debates in the media were sensational,not just sensationalized.Harder yet is to envision a time when conservative political commentators weren't complete buffoons,but rather eloquent,smart thinkers.That is exactly the time thatBest of Enemiestransports us to,Robert Gordon and Morgan Neville's film about the televised debates leading up to the 1968 Republican and Democratic national conventions.ABC,then trailing as America's third network and in search of a ratings boost,decided to pit two of the country's most famous commentators against one another: the liberal Gore Vidal and the conservative William F.Buckley Jr.The two were known to dislike each other and their pairing on live TV was sure to cause a stir.
