The Fog of War (2003)

Fascinating and I'm glad to have seen it however it's a little dry at times. Good for almost everyone to watch at least once but this really isn't the type of documentary you want to see again and again.

The Fog of War (2003)

Morris assembles an insightful, haunting and intimate portrait of the enigmatic, and brilliant Robert Strange McNamara. Try as you might to come to the piece with bias and preconception you'll walk away knee deep in the morass of ideological dissatisfaction. A work of art.
