William Kunstler [Film] : disturbing the universe

dir. by Emily Kunstler, Sarah Kunstler ; written by Sarah Kunstler
« William Kunstler was one of the most famous lawyers of the 20th century. The New York Times called him "the most hated and most loved lawyer in America." His clients included Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Phillip and Daniel Berrigan, Abbie Hoffman, H. Rap Brown, Stokely Carmichael, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., and Leonard Peltier. Few lawyers were more radicalized in their beliefs, or more theatrical in the courtroom, than Kunstler. His daughters jam-pack their film portrait with archival sound and footage of seminal events of the last 50-some years. Both a memoir and a history lesson, the film looks back on their late father - a crusading civil rights lawyer who later defended a host of unsavory characters - with a combination of love, admiration and bafflement for the man he was and the career he forged. »
