The Fog of War (2003)

This is a fascinating documentary that is essentially a conversation with Robert McNamara, the man who was Defense Secretary during the Vietnam War. Other than his interview, there is stock footage of war scenes and some recordings of him talking to Kennedy and Johnson.

Given that, it's one of the most fascinating documentaries I've ever seen. It's an 85 year old man reflecting on his life and the lessons he's learned. Truly excellent.

JSS Rating: Good/Good

I worked on this film. Errol Morris is a talented storyteller. It was like going to Grad school for History personnaly.
