Donald Rumsfeld is too slippery for Errol Morris. The topical filmmaker of The Thin Blue Line and The Fog of War tries his best to pin down his interview subject, the former US Defense Secretary, on the true genesis of the US war on Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, circa 2003 -- but Rumsfeld, notorious inventor of the “unknown known” alibi, wriggles free again and again, leaving us perplexed. Just who is the cat, and who the mouse? Conspiracy theorists, save your energy. Rummy rides again (103 min.).
