Peer into Rumsfeld's Mind and Black, Soulless Eyes in 'The Unknown Known' Sneak Peek

August 30, 2013


A spiritual successor to The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara, Errol Morris's The Unknown Known sees the documentarian once again training his Interrotron on an old guy largely responsible for a drawn-out, awful war. This time, it's former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld who sits down with Morris, who grills him on his "obsession" with Iraq and the takedown of Saddam Hussein. Obviously you can expect to be suitably frightened by insights provided, but as you'll see in this first sneak peek from Vice, also expect to be quite horrified by Rumsfeld's playful grins. But who can hold back a smile when they're recounting war?
