Rationality Will Not Save Us

In the latest documentary from Errol Morris, Robert McNamara considers the lessons of war

In the film's epilogue, McNamara drives away from the interview while Morris plays a segment in a voice-over -- a segment, not incidentally, with questions that McNamara refused to answer. During these evasions, we see McNamara's face reflected in the rearview mirror of his car. Can he see himself? And what has looking back accomplished? It's the perfect bookend to the movie's opening gambit, and it's a great question.
