Errol Morris United States, 2011

El Biffo's rating of the film The Umbrella Man

Errol Morris debunks all conspiracy theories in one fell swoop with an amusing anecdote. But it isn't great cinema. Documentaries that mostly show a person sitting in a chair talking should be radio programs, not cinema. But I guess then they wouldn't get put on you tube, or get much attention. And don't look for a fascinating story here. The story is that there is no story. Not the story we are looking for, anyway.
