THE FOG OF WAR

Fog of War Errol Morris’s seventh film "The Fog of War” initially included “The Eleven Lessons of Robert S. McNamara" in its title to prepare audiences for its highly controversial subject, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara.

Every voice you hear in this must-see documentary is that of McNamara who, from 1961 to 1968 presided over U.S. military actions at the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis and in Viet Nam.

McNamara's ideas occur (from one-on-one interviews with Morris, a mass of press interviews and newly available recorded conversations with Presidents Kennedy and Johnson) reveal McNamara's well-defined duty to the Presidents he served. The result is an intelligent and heartfelt historical monologue of mammoth proportion.

This is the most culturally significant documentary imaginable, and should be mandatory for repeated viewing by public officials the world over.

Rated PG-13. 116 mins.

5 Stars
