If there was something dicey going on in your life in the 1970s, '80s and '90s, the last person you wanted to see at your door was Mike Wallace with a film crew. The newsman's segments for "60 Minutes" on CBS didn't include too many softball questions. Avi Belkin's new documentary "Mike Wallace is Here," being screened Sept. 6 by cinema-worcester, is an "all-archival portrait" that explores what drove the feared reporter, who died in 2012. By tracking Wallace's storied career and troubled personal life, the film also unpacks how broadcast journalism evolved from the past to its troubling present.
