Academy Award Winner Errol Morris offers a portrait of Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key architects of the Iraq War and a central figure of the Republican Party for 30 years. A.O. Scott from The New York Times describes it as "a cat-and-mouse game in which each player thinks he's the cat, making it both thrilling and disconcerting to watch."
