About this movie

The Fog of War is a 20th century fable, a story of an American dreamer who rose from humble origins to the heights of political power. Robert S. McNamara was both witness to and participant in many of the crucial events of the 20th century: the crippling Depression of the 1930s; the industrialization of the war years; the development of a different kind of warfare based on air power and the creation of a new American meritocracy. He was also an idealist who saw his dreams and ideals challenged by the role he played in history. 2003 Sony Pictures Classics Inc. All Rights Reserved.

It's a crime that wisdom of the years is ignored. These people made mistakes that could've ended life as we know it, yet their testaments are almost completely unheard

While categorized as a documentary this film has a life of its own. Following the life of Robert McNamara is a story that Hollywood couldn't have made up. its heart wrenching thought provocative and a lot of fun to watch.

One of the best documentaries I have ever seen. Just happens to be one of the most controversial figures of the Vietnam era. Hated at the time, here he comes off as the brilliant man that he was, simply another victim of the times.
