Film
The Unknown Known: Synopsis

Buy: DVD & Blu-ray

In his latest film, The Unknown Known (April 4, 2014), Morris explores the long political history and the worldview of Donald Rumsfeld, as the two-time former secretary of defense himself describes it. Through dozens of hours of interview footage and thousands of Rumsfeld's memos (many of which have never before been released), Morris puts on display the dizzying, Carrollian illogic used by members of the Bush administration to justify war in Iraq.
