Tom Wolfe Gets Back To Blood takes viewers behind the scenes of the Back To Blood ‘s creation in the first ever documentary about the iconic writer of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and The Bonfire of the Vanities.
Director Oscar Corral, an award-winning journalist who had interviewed the literary icon in 2003, offered to be Wolfe’s “fixer” when he came to Miami to research his yet-to-be-written novel addressing topics like immigration, hedonism, wealth, and class. Wolfe took him up on it. The result is a film shot over five years that features Wolfe exploring Miami’s quirky mix of cultures and neighborhoods and even sailing in a regatta, all while usually in his trademark white suit.
Vanity Fair has caught on to the buzz; the magazine is currently featuring an exclusive clip of the film onlineand a column by director Oscar Corral describing his unique access to Wolfe, including a visit to a notorious strip club.
