‘The Hitch’- Christopher Hitchens documentary

A second post on Christopher Hitchens Day: this is a wonderful indie documentary by Kristoffer Hellesmark. It features footage from a variety of sources with commentary in Hitchens own words from talks, speeches and interviews.

Kristoffer has produced a really excellent film.

The last words of Christopher Hitchens

I continue to read Hitchens for inspiration, and brush off those detractors who devalue his entire life simply because he was in favor of the Iraq war. The man spent his life battling totalitarianism and irrationality, and of course he was sometimes wrong. Who among us hasn’t been? But mark a few errors against the very full column of his brilliance, his fight for what he saw as true, his copious writings on so many topics, and the eloquence that inspired us all. It’s a bromide to say of someone who’s died that “they can’t be replaced,” but in the case of Hitchens it’s undeniably true.
