FROM Errol Morris
Errol Morris Filmmaker Errol Morris discusses his famed interview device, the interrotron, which allows the subjects of his films to maintain eye contact both with the camera and him during the interviews. He used it to great effect for the Oscar-winning Fog of War and his new movie, The Unknown Known . When Morris isn't deep in the midst of a film he can be found directing commercials. He boast a thousand ads directed, and his dirty little secret is...he loves it. Plus, what does he think of Twitter?
Rumsfeld Gets the Errol Morris Treatment In Errol Morris' Oscar-winning film, The Fog of War , former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara was conscience-stricken over the war in Vietnam. Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told Morris he hated it, because "that man had nothing to apologize for." Then Rumsfeld sat down for an interview of his own — without demanding any right of approval. The result is The Unknown Known , which addresses what Morris calls the "contradictions and falsehoods" associated with decisions to go to war.
Errol Morris: The Unknown Known Eleven years ago the United States invaded Iraq. Donald Rumsfeld led that invasion as President Bush’s defense secretary. He became known at the daily Pentagon briefings for his colorful and circuitous statements... a man utterly confident that the U.S. was doing the right thing, despite mounting evidence that the war was not as well planned as it could have been and - in fact - had been waged under false pretenses. Donald Rumsfeld is now the subject of a new documentary by Errol Morris.
James Mangold on 'Logan' and fighting franchise fatigue Filmmaker James Mangold has been making character-driven dramas for more than 20 years, but lately, he's been in the X-Men superhero business. In his latest film, Logan, Hugh Jackman plays the slashing Marvel mutant one last time, so Mangold wanted to make something more nuanced than the usual comic-book movie.
Big plans for tiny houses, homes for hope The tiny house movement is booming, even though in most places, people can't legally live in them. But that didn't stop a group of enthusiasts from learning how to build one at CAFAM. What will they do with their tiny homes? And as Angelenos have passed measures to build more housing for the homeless, a group of architecture students is trying to speed up access to shelter -- with designs for temporary housing with "curb appeal."
