Good Biopic of McNamara

I never knew much about McNamara before, and this not only gives a broad sweep of his career but also gives you a glimpse into McNamara as a human being, and his own mannerisms and words speak volumes about his strengths and weaknesses.

Intense, educational, at times stunning

I don't think listening to R. McNamara speak for 90 minutes could possibly be more entertaining unless he was drunk. His stories are told with the charm of your favorite professor and the insight of a man who made some of the bloodiest decisions in the history of war. He shows what seems to be his human side at times but is constantly sly and deceptive. He admits he would be rightfully tried as a war criminal had Japan won WWII. Even if you hate him, it's hard to disagree with his lessons, the most important of which are being ignored by the current US administration. The doc is visually interesting throughout, is surprisingly fun to watch, and gripping for a documentary monologue.
