[movies] The Fog of War

I was surprised at how good it was. He (Robert Macnamara) says a lot more things that
pacifists would say than you would expect from what he’s spent his
life doing.

Another unusual thing was that the “deleted scenes” section of the
DVD was about as good, and in some places more interesting, than the
regular video. It’s about another hour, so leave 2.5 hours for
watching the DVD rather than 1.5.


Gorgeous scenery. I didn’t make as much sense of the plot as I
might have liked to. I asked John Littler whether he’d been there,
and apparently he had, although he hadn’t seen the movie. But he’d
bee in desert areas north of Adelaide.
