Ricciardelli, Lucia. “Documentary Filmmaking in the Postmodern Age. Errol Morris & The Fog of Truth.” Studies in Documentary Film 4:1 (2010) 35-50. This article is an analysis of Morris’s documentary style. It comments that Morris subverts the notion of photographic evidence, chronological structure and omniscient narration. Uses his film The Fog of War as a case study. Discusses Morris’s invention of the Interrotron a device which forces the interviewee to look directly into the camera.
Talks about Morris and his stream of consciousness approach to interviewing which allows for the subject to contradict themselves and in this contradiction is what he calls cognitive dissonance. Morris suggests the truth lies in these contradictions and inconsistencies.
