Errol Morris has revolutionized documentary movies several times over, but one of his greatest talents is letting the camera roll on a person he's interviewing and letting them talk - something fascinating almost always comes up as a result. In his newest movie, "The Unknown Known", he gives that treatment to former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, as well as showcasing some of the memos Rumsfeld has kept across almost fifty years. It will be fascinating to watch the multiple ways Donald Rumsfeld uses to explain his actions, and compare to Morris' earlier "The Fog of War", where he interviewed Robert McNamara.
We'll be meeting in the lobby of the AMC theaters by the CIFF ticket booth 30 minutes before the movie's 7:30 start time, and right outside the theater after the screening. Picking up advance tickets ($14) is highly recommended - you can pick them up at the AMC box office or from Ticketmaster at http://www.ticketmaster.com/the-unknown-known-chicago-illinois-10-23-2013/event/21004B30E60E91D5?artistid=1642521&majorcatid=10005&minorcatid=0)
