Underrated short film
random-7077810 December 2020
Not sure why this film is not rated much higher here on IMDB. Oriana Fallaci stands as the top European journalists. She was so tenacious, in Pakistan reporting on the condition of women there in 1961, removing the "Chador" she was forced to wear to interview Khomeni, and in scores of penetrating interviews with leading figures of the 1960s and decades following. She opened Kissinger like a tin can in what is considered to be his most candid interview.

Even in her semi retirement as she witness the 911 attacks in Manhattan from a few blocks away, she insightfully wrote about the forces of Islamic extremism that brought that about.

This vignette on her being assigned to chase down Marylin Monroe for a European glossy is just wonderfully done period piece.
