I watched most of the Errol Morris documentary The Fog of War, and take from it two things:
1) Errol morris should have stuck to letting McNamara just talk it out, as what he said was a lot more interesting than the arty footage he interspersed it with, though the taped recordings of him talking to kennedy and LBJ were amazing.
And what was with him yelling suggestions to McNamara during the taping. A little indulgent if you ask me. It is not suprising that the geeky “Ipod makes me feel powerful” switcher kid is Errol Morris’ son.
2) Phillip Glass is a hack. His “minimalism” is an excuse to exploit simplicity and cliche. Perhaps I need to listen to “Einstein on the Beach” or something, but I have never enjoyed anything by him, excepting of course his turn on the original South Park Christmas Special*.
