Errol Morris movie on Rumsfeld

"Morris did not respond to numerous calls and e-mails seeking comment, but a well-placed source tells Vulture that Rumsfeld sat down with Morris last month for a wide-ranging series of interviews that cover the entire span of his 40 years in public life — as a naval aviator, four-term congressman, counselor to President Nixon, big pharma CEO, and, of course, as the second-longest-serving Secretary of Defense in history. (Rumsfeld served just nine days fewer than the longest-serving Pentagon chief, McNamara himself.) “Errol has the magic of getting people to talk about everything,” says one studio chief who knows Morris well. “And they’ll sit until things go wrong.”

Vulture

Any post-Bush interview I've seen / read of him, he's been very defensive and evasive. I guess if anyone can get him to be candid, it's Morris and his Interrotron.

Interesting, but kind of a re-tread for Morris. Been there done that. You can almost picture Rumsfeld's cagey mind where he thinks "this guy made McNamara come off pretty well, maybe it'll work for me too".

Agreed. This will almost certainly be something very much worth seeing.

I'll definitely watch this.

He is also directing a film adaption of Richard Preston's "The Demon in the Freezer." Should be very interesting!

Re: Errol Morris movie on Rumsfeld

I saw this on the history channel last Saturday.

Was Rumsfeld a CEO for Chrysler too?

Imagine if Reagan picked him as VP and Rumsfeld and not Bush Sr was president in 1989-1992?
