Storyline

Director Elia Kazan and playwright Arthur Miller were once best friends and professional colleagues, to most that knew them then in both capacities as soul mates. Their politics were similar which was reflected in their work. Kazan was a Communist Party member for a few years in the mid-1930's, but Miller never officially joined the party ranks. Their relationship changed in the early 1950's when Kazan was subpoenaed to testify in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee. To the Committee, Kazan named names of supposed friends - albeit names the Committee already had - but for many, including Miller, Kazan's move was both an act of support of the Committee's blacklisting, and a purely self-preserving measure for his own movie directing career. Kazan's professional life, and by association personal life, was not an easy one following his testimony. Both Kazan and Miller's individual works following - most specifically Kazan's On the Waterfront (1954), Miller's "The Crucible"... Written by Huggo

Superb Examination of Kazan, Miller, Monroe and the HUAC
13 January 2004 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

At 120 minutes this is quite long for a documentary but it had me entranced for the whole time. Taking as a focal point the protests against Kazan when he was awarded a lifetime achievement Oscar in 1999, this film examines the different reactions of Kazan and Miller when called before the House Un-American Activities Committee in the mid 'fifties - and the consequences for both.
