The Fog of War
Arguably the best film yet by the award-winning documentarian Errol Morris, The Fog of War, a look at the life of former Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, gets a deftly handled expanded treatment upon its release to DVD. The film is presented in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.78:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. French, Portuguese, Spanish, and Japanese subtitles are accessible. The bonus materials feature two-dozen additional scenes created by Morris from the copious amount of footage he took during his lengthy interview sessions with McNamara. These scenes add more information and depth to a film already overflowing with historical perspective and analysis. Television promotional spots for the film round out this excellent release from Columbia/TriStar.
