Errol Morris (The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara) has made a name for himself as a documentarian by using his unique and probing insight to uncover the truth behind all manner of complexities and nefarious cover-ups, which makes his latest film — The Unknown Known — even more challenging, because the subject is none other than former United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, a masterful political figure with an uncanny ability to reveal as little about himself and his role in some of the most pivotal points in recent history as possible.
How is it that so little is actually known about one of the most public governmental spokesmen of this generation? Morris asks him to dance before the cameras, but expect Rumsfeld to come off as light on his feet as ever. Opens April 4 at Esquire Theatre. (PG-13) Not screened in time for review
