This film highlights Robert McNamara's career during the Vietnam war. It was slightly confusing and difficult to form an opinion on McNamara since the film reveals his influence and involvement during a violent war, but he seems to continually defend himself throughout the film. Seeing McNamara cry and be put in a vulnerable situation in front of the camera makes me believe that he really has been affected by the war and found that period of his life to be saddening even though he was successful at the same time. Errol Morris, the director, uses many rhetorical strategies in his film to display his opinions and set a mood of sadness and destruction during the Vietnam war. Morris used many clips from the war with dramatic music playing in the background, voice overs over clips of newspaper headlines, interviews McNamara in person, and uses symbols and animated imagery to represent issues that occured at that time.
Overall, this film was sad but educational and meant for an audience with a background understanding of the Vietnam war. I found Morrisâ(TM)s film techniques very influential in the way of persuading the audience to believe one side over another and would recommend this film to be shown in history or language classes for either the educational side of the Vietnam war and what went down, or the rhetorical strategies side.
