Movie about McNamara

Hello all, have just come up for air for a minute in a very heavy schedule, made heavier because of procrastination during the summer. Last evening Mr. CAM and I watched The Fog of War -- an really interesting documentary about Robert McNamara -- following his career from pre-WWII to his retirement from the World Bank through his recollections in interviews about WWI, his career at Ford, his work with JFK and Johnson presidencies, plus tapes now publicly available of his conversations with JFK and Johnson regarding the Vietnam war. I'm not really much for documentaries, but this one was really fascinating.

I've only seen one film by Errol Morris; the very quirky and interesting Dr.Death. After reading the review by Roger Ebert <a href="http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbc ... 30302/1023 "><small>http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbc ... /small></a>
and your own reaction I can't wait to see "The Fog of War".
