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

Errol Morris United States, 2003

Nikola Enchev's rating of the film The Fog of War

While it is undoubtedly an interesting subject and an incredible catch (to talk to McNamara face to face), the Fog of War suffers from dull film making. It should be either shorter, where McNamara speaks more, or it needs an Adam Curtis touch where the visual collage of archive footage is more engaging and intuitive.
