THE MOST DANGER­OUS MAN IN AMER­ICA: DANIEL ELLS­BERG AND THE PEN­TAGON PA­PERS

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

This is the story of Daniel Ells­berg, the RAND an­a­lyst who leaked the Pen­tagon Pa­pers, a top-se­cret gov­ern­ment re­port that con­cluded that the war could not be won, to The New York Times in 1971. Nar­rated by Ells­berg, the film’s sub­ject may be old hat to those who lived through it, but to­day it makes for an eye-open­ing his­tory of an age when the ir­re­press­ible con­science of one highly con­nected man could ac­tu­ally sway pub­lic opin­ion on a war. Not rated. 94 min­utes.
