It could be construed as a dodge, but coming from Ezra Edelman it’s more like a declaration of purpose.
Not only did the D.C.-raised filmmaker have the audacity to make a 7½ -hour documentary about one of the most warmed-over subjects in recent American history, but he has also won a parade of critical acclaim. New York Magazine called it a “masterpiece,” while Hank Stuever’s review in The Washington Post called it “nothing short of a towering achievement.” And that’s without peddling any flashy new revelations. “That’s not what I’m interested in,” he said over tacos near his home in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn. “I’m doing something a little different.”
