“I’ve always thought that the perfect symbol of Christianity is the broken phallus…”

19 Feb

Cool little quasi-documentary from 1979 featuring Vidal, amusing as ever, at the height of his pre-flippant curmudgeon period. He discusses writing, religion, politics, his only encounter with the Mafia, and the vicissitudes of throwing Norman Mailers. Some of the the southern Italian backdrops are quite beautiful. Part 1 embedded above, watch parts 2-7 here.
