An Interview with Errol Morris

It was a thrill to interview Errol Morris recently, who is truly one of my heroes. Morris was incredibly generous with his time, and he was also the first guest I ever interviewed that yelled at me during the interview(!). His secretary eyed me through the glass wall a few times during the interview, wondering if I was disturbing the peace. Fortunately, it was merely a lively discussion on the nature of truth.

I wrote up some highlights of our conversation over at /Film, but the real meat is in the hour-plus long conversation I’ve preserved in audio form. Give it a download and check it out, will ya?

  • Excellent interview! Thinking of having my English 101 students listen to this, particularly because they've just been reading and discussing a portion of Susan Sontag's classic <>.

    I'm looking forward to checking out <> – maybe the next group of 101 students will get portions of that to read next quarter. (Mustn't indulge myself too much and also assign <> and <> – tempting though.)

  • Oops. Stuff that should be between the 4 sets of brackets: On Photography, Seeing Is Believing, The Thin Blue Line, Tabloid
