Errol Morris on "The Fog of War"

Download Audio
Filmmaker Errol Morris has an affinity for the naive and appalling. In his break-out documentary, "Fast, Cheap and Out of Control," he showed us just a few of the bizarre and passionate dwellers from the American fringe. "Thin Blue Line," exposed the crooked system which put an innocent man on death row --and helped set him free.

Now, Morris brings us "The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons From the Life of Robert S. McNamara," a study of one of the 20th century's most controversial figures. We turn the lens on the remarkable career of Errol Morris.
