Walker Percy Documentary

Several people have asked me what (for the novice) is the best way in to Percy — well, fortunately a terrific documentary is available made by documentarist Win Riley. The film’s homepage is here — if you missed the PBS broadcasts the film is available on DVD. Having viewed the film several times and discussed it with Percy experts all are of the view that Riley has done a superb job capturing the subtleties of his complex subject matter. I also had the good fortune to chat at length with Win about the challenges he faced in its making.
