The Cinema of Errol Morris offers close analyses of the director's
films-from box office successes like The Thin Blue Line and The Fog of
War to Morris's early works like Vernon, Florida and controversial
films like Standard Operating Procedure. Film scholar David Resha's
reappraisal of Morris's films allows us to rethink the traditional

experiments with documentary conventions constitute another way to
investigate reality-in particular, to examine the ways in which his
