Morris’ film THE UNKNOWN KNOWN is a gripping exploration of the career and philosophy of former U.S Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Using declassified memos, Morris guides Rumsfeld through a discussion of his controversial career as a high-level executive under four different Republican presidents. Such absorbing topics as Vietnam, the Cold War, Desert Storm and the War on Terror are all examined through the words of one of America’s most divisive and complex public figures.

  1. terry thomas says:

    Excellent….shows how near we were to having this dangerous man as President of USA……His nasty and confused thinking is so apparent in the film…even he saw that one of his statements had the ‘upside meaning’ of what he wanted to say!!!
    His cracker barrel philosophy masquerading as logic is totally exposed…with him and that equally evil man Cheney and t he dullard really is wonder we are still here….if cold war conditions existed then there would have been a nuclear holocaust
