‘Radical Wolfe’ Offers Look at Iconoclast Tom Wolfe
Sunday, September 10, 2023


The first documentary about author Tom Wolfe will be shown during September as part of the Sun Valley Film Festival’s monthly film screenings.

“Radical Wolfe” will be shown at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, at The Argyros Center for the Performing Arts in Ketchum.

Wolfe, a satirist and journalist authored “The Bonfire of the Vanities,” a satirical piece about a Wall Street millionaire whose life is destroyed when his mistress strikes a young man in the Bronx. His “The Right Stuff” tells the story of the Apollo astronauts, and “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test,” recounts how  Ken Kesey and his psychedelic enthusiasts traveled across the country in a colorfully painted school bus.

Wolfe started out a beat reporter at the Washington Post and pioneered the New Journalism movement, reshaping how American stories are told.

“Radical Wolfe,” a film by Richard Dewey, is based on a Vanity Fair article by Michael Lewis. It features interviews with those who knew Wolfe best, including Sun Valley’s ann Wenner, founder of “Rolling Stone” magazine; Gay Talese, Christopher Buckley, Niall Ferguson and Alexandra Wolfe.

Tickets are $20, available at
