That’s the question that undergirds Charlie Siskel’s new documentary ‘American Anarchist’.
Siskel is best known for producing the documentaries ‘Bowling for Columbine’ and ‘Finding Vivian Maier’ (which he also directed) — and for being film critic Gene Siskel’s nephew.
Charlie Siskel figures prominently in his newest picture.
Though we never see Siskel on screen we hear his voice throughout the film.
He is a tenacious — bordering on pugnacious — interviewer- determined to ask Powell the aforementioned question from every possible angle.
