Information and Film Reviews for The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara the Movie

Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Oscar winner for Best Documentary not only gave prolific documentarian Morris his first Academy Award, but also presents a startlingly honest and three-dimensional portrayal of one of the major architects of twentieth-century American history, Robert McNamara. A former president of the Ford Automotive Company and the Secretary of Defense for both Kennedy and Johnson, McNamara speaks frankly about his role in the Bay of Pigs and the Vietnam War, alternating between offering fascinating insights and arguing with his off-screen interviewer. He'll make you love him one moment and cringe the next. A must-see for history buffs.
