If you care more about filmography than actual content, please watch this film. While watching it, I was constantly amazed by the beautiful imagery and the tone that the interviewer took on the topic, but the actual content-the subject of the film-was a downer and the cause of distrust in the most abrupt and unsettling way. McNamara's tone throughout the whole film was chillingly calm and reserved when discussing matters of great importance and his mannerisms never seemed to match his words. The images (such as the numbered bombs) added an element of visual metaphor that is cerebral and enticing; it helps to balance out the terribly boring and frankly upsetting reserved speech spewing out of McNamara like a broken fire hydrant.
The end of the film left the taste of sour milk in my mouth due to the aggressive tone McNamara took when asked his opinion of interviews. Because of his distrust of speaking truthfully, it seemed to disqualify all of the information he gave to the watcher in the past hour and a half of film. I finished the doc with the feeling of having wasted a lot of time listening to a man lie for an extended period of time, trying to excuse the murder of thousands of people due to ignorance. I would not recommend watching this film unless you are open to hearing a point of view so aggressively unsettling that it makes you queasy.
