Movie - The Fog of War
Errol Morris' masterful documentary about the life of Robert McNamara. This is one of the finest documentaries - nay, one of the finest movies - ever made. It was incindary when it was released during the run-up to the Iraq War, and six years later its power has only grown.
Interesting, isn't it, that the only great movies about the Bush/Cheney Iraq War have been documentaries? The fictional dramas have all been disappointments, boring, slightly preachy. The non-fiction films have been extraordinary.
You should have this on DVD. I can't wait for the inevitable Blu-Ray release. Enjoy.
