Documentarian Errol Morris directs THE FOG OF WAR, a captivating look at Robert S. McNamara, who served as the Secretary of Defense during the Vietnam War and the Cuban Missile Crisis. The movie does not exclusively focus on this part of McNamara's career, however, and instead gives a broad overview of the man he was, his multitude of roles--a Harvard Business School graduate, a Colonel in the Air Force during WWII, president of Ford Motor Company--and his opinions on a variety of historical topics. Inspired by two books written by McNamara--IN RETROSPECT (1995) and WILSON'S GHOST (2001)--Morris gives McNamara a forum to talk about the decisions he made and the influence he had during his career. At the age of 85, McNamara has gained necessary perspective to do just that. Sharp as a tack, loaded with charisma, and generally fascinating, McNamara easily carries the film with his revealing interviews. Meanwhile, Morris's use of archival footage--along with maps and other effective visual aids--add context to McNamara's commentary, and Philip Glass's ominous, pulsing score gives the film's important subject matter the gravity it deserves.

Come along on a wild African safari with Spin, National Geographic's animated globe-on-the-go. From the Serengeti Plain to the Kalahari Desert, experience the amazing ways that animals like cheetahs, crocodiles, rhinos and elephants survive. You'll learn about life in a lion pride, what it's like to be a chimp, and much more. It's the wild spirit of African animals as captured by the world's finest filmmakers - plus exciting music videos too! You're in for an exciting, fun-filled ride when you go on a SWINGING SAFARI - just one of the many Really Wild Animals adventures in this award-winning series.
This 39-minute nature video from National Geographic begins with a roar as African lions demonstrate the law of survival that rules the African continent (but without actual on-screen carnage). Narrator Spin--voiced by Dudley Moore--conducts a dizzying tour using techniques today's media-saturated young viewers will understand. Whether interrupting himself for a migration (traffic) report, listing the top 10 reasons why it's best to be at the top of the food chain, or introducing the four "music videos," the animated planet Earth makes the problems of crocodiles, rhinos, and meerkats relevant to kids from preschool age on up. Jane Goodall and her chimps make an appearance, as does a woman who cares for orphaned baby elephants. Parents not sold on the concept of evolution might want to note that the video draws direct parallels between apes and humans and the similarities are the subject of one of the songs. --Kimberly Heinrichs

In the violent secret world of the mafia, no Don ruled longer than Joe Bonanno of the powerful Castellamarese family. This is the true chilling saga, told in his own words- a compelling journey that leads a small boy from Sicily to become the pre-eminent leader of America's vast criminal empire. Featuring a remarkable all-star cast, including Academy-Awards winner Martin Landau, Robert Loggia, Costas Mandylor and Edward James Olmos, Bonanno: A Godfather's Story spans many decades and international locations. The young "Pepino" flees his fascist oppressors in Italy to make a new start in America. His deep family ties and fiery ambition soon take him to the innermost circles of New York organized crime, where he rises to become the youngest Mafia boss ever. From his showdown with the deadly Gambino gang, his clashes with Lucky Luciano, his meetings with President Roosevelt, his backroom deals with Joseph Kennedy to his final betrayal by his own family, this is Bonanno's own true, inside account based on the best-selling autobiography. For over 40 years, Don Joseph Bonanno ruled with both ruthlessness and honor- and survived as the last of the Godfathers. Only now can his full story be told.

|The 1900 House: An Extraordinary Living Experiment [VHS]
Lowest new price: $49.99
Lowest used price: $22.05
Viewers time-travel vicariously in this four-part "docu-soap" that transplants a modern family from 1999 to 1900. The series clearly evinces the radical changes in domestic life wrought by the scientific and technological innovations of the last 100 years. The Bowler family are taken back in time to the spring of 1900 in Greenwich, a suburb of London, England. For 3 months, they live as a family in 1900 would have lived.
Who hasn't longed for the simplicity of times past, when life was less convoluted, without the complications of cell phones, e-mail, and chauffeuring kids to soccer games? Well, one episode into PBS's reality series The 1900 House will have you rethinking your romanticization of days gone by.
Take one modern 1999 family, insert them into a Victorian London house redesigned to exact 1900 standards, focus a camera on them for three months, and you have The 1900 House. The Bowler family is a typical family of six (actually, seven--the oldest daughter remained in 1999 to take care of the house): 9-year-old Joe is a computer games addict, teenage Kathryn is a club hopper, and preteen twins Hilary and Ruth are still young enough to be the most mature people in the family. Add mother Joyce, a school inspector on hiatus, and father Paul, a Royal Marine who takes his head-of-the-household role a bit too seriously, and you have an immensely likable family living under incredibly strained circumstances.
The first of four episodes focuses on the rebuilding of the house: the removal of the indoor plumbing and electricity, the installation of the coal-burning stove, the planting of the Victorian-era garden, and such. The subsequent three episodes follow the refreshingly fascinating daily life of the Bowler family as they navigate cooking, cleaning, entertaining themselves, and even personal hygiene (Paul learns to cope with a straight-edged razor, and Joyce and Kathryn get a lesson on womanly issues of 1900). Tight editing condenses the three months into four hours, keeping the series fast paced and humorous. Whether you're a reality-TV junkie or have an honest interest in a documentary on Victorian life, The 1900 House will certainly delight. --Jenny Brown

These seven brilliant programs by America's foremost documentary filmmaker comprise a glorious anthem to a great nation and its people. "Brooklyn Bridge" and "Statue of Liberty" chronicle the conception and building of these magnificent structures that grace New York Harbor. "Empire of the Air" is an absorbing history of radio and the men who created it, while "The Congress" is a fascinating portrait of this unique American institution. Opposites in almost every way, artist "Thomas Hart Benton" and politician "Huey Long" are portrayed in compelling biographies. "The Shakers" is a moving tribute to the most enduring religious experiment in American history.
