"A worthy addition to Morris's body of work, an epic search that demonstrates the limits of language, the ease of sidestepping truth." - David Edelstein, Vulture
From accliamed filmmaker Errol Morris ("The Fog of War," "The Thin Blue Line"), THE UNKNOWN KNOWN is a gripping exploration of the career and philosophy of former U.S Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Using declassified memos, Morris guides Rumsfeld through a discussion of his controversial career as a high-level executive under four different Republican presidents. Such absorbing topics as Vietnam, the Cold War, Desert Storm and the War on Terror are all examined through the words of one of America's most divisive and complex public figures.
