The gloves are off, as America’s foremost documentary filmmaker Errol Morris (sorry Michael Moore) gets in the ring with former US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
In office during 9/11 and the subsequent Iraq war and invasion of Afghanistan, Rumsfeld has, depending on your politics, a lot to answer for.
Morris is no newbie, having taken on Rumsfeld’s decades-past predecessor Robert McNamara in Oscar winner The Fog Of War , which also saw its subject get a to-camera grilling.
But Rumsfeld is slipperier than a tank of eels (the title itself comes from his own brain-bending double-speak), frequently bobbing and weaving around Morris’ oft-ineffectual jabs.
Fascinating and frustrating.
