The Fog Of War
- 106 min
- Directed by: Errol Morris
Assembled from archival footage and some 20 hours of one-on-one interviews with Robert McNamara, the former secretary of defence in the Kennedy and Nixon administrations, Morris' compelling documentary presents McNamara's own perspective of his involvement in epochal events such as World War II, the Cuban missile crisis and the Vietnam war. Morris the questioner stays off-screen, and doesn't call on other witnesses, as we watch this still pugnacious 85-year-old recollect the decisions he made which shaped world history. With this frightening and fascinating glimpse into the life of the man who is possibly Donald Rumsfield's greatest influence, Morris yet again proves that he is the most vital and important documentary feature filmmaker working in the US today.
