<![CDATA[Reel Experiences with Robert Humanick: Donald Rumsfeld highlighted in documentary 'The Unknown Known']]> There should be no doubt among anyone who has seen any of Errol Morris' films (which began with 1978 profound "Gates of Heaven") that he is among our greatest living documentarians. Few have so incisively probed their subjects' knotty moral grounds while also pushing the form of the medium. While the talented filmmaker's latest "The Unknown Known" can be called another triumph, this is a film as much about what Morris is able to extract from his subject as what can only be read between the lines.

<![CDATA['Reel Experiences' with Robert Humanick: 'Ernest & Celestine' released on DVD June 17]]> It was noted by some Oscar pundits that of the 56 movies nominated for the 2014 Academy Awards, none had as slim a chance of taking home the prize as the darling Ernest & Celestine. The animated film is a poignant fable about an unlikely friendship between a bear and a mouse that in a just world, would have at least had a chance against the mega-success of Disney's Frozen.
