The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara

Errol Morris United States, 2003

smndvdcl's rating of the film The Fog of War

Morris can be forgiven for adhering to his documentary interview based formula. Why? He gave us 'The Thin Blue Line', proving that future efforts are an example of substance over style. His interviewing technique brings McNamara out of his prepared rhetoric into this startling pro-pacifist investigation of a controversial Secretary of Defense alumni. Fascinating and provocative - the best kind of propaganda.
