With an impressive cast,
We watch many movies each year and most of them are forgotten in few weeks. But a few of them we remember for a long time. The Fog of War is one of these movies. This two-hour documentary is a cut from a twenty-four hour interview with former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. Mostly made in black and white to add drama, the movie is about the life and times of this once-feared, unfeeling, unsmiling , cold and arrogant “Mac the Knife”.
I have added a new name to my list of heroes - Daniel Ellsberg. As a child, I remember hearing his name and knew that he was in some way connected with the Vietnam War and what was referred to as the Pentagon Papers. The Most Dangerous Man in America, (on DVD) tells the story of Daniel Ellsberg and the pivotal role he played in American history.
