Storyline

Two men defined newspaper reporting in late 20th century New York. They understood the streets, the people and events that shape their lives. Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill mark the end of a tradition, city reporters telling the story of their city while presiding over the death of their trade. They were more than writers. This film is a history of their work and their lives told in their words because no one else is qualified to tell the tale. Written by Don P

documentary at its most vital
2 February 2019 | by bukumiSee all my reviews

I worked in New York television, just outside the professional circle loosely defined by Jimmy Breslin, Pete Hamill and the City's great newspapers and journalists of the 1980s. I did move through the worlds they each covered and read their columns. Like most New Yorkers, I appreciated their service to humankind. "Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists" is a top shelf production that weaves archival images, TV appearances and recent interviews and some of Jimmy's and Pete's best copy. The film's pulse and temperature matches its two different journalists, their respective sets of colleagues, and the poetry of their reporting and living style. We hear from Breslin's living sons; his surviving second wife and from Hamill's wife, co-workers and media pundits. Much of this is emotionally moving and fact-based and worth a watch - two or three times.
