    (February 5, 1948- )
    Documentary filmmaker
    Directed 'Gates of Heaven (1978),' 'Vernon, Florida (1981),' 'The Thin Blue Line (1988),' 'The Dark Wind (1991),' ''A Brief History of Time (1991),' 'Fast, Cheap and Out of Control (1997),' 'Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr. (1999),' and 'The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara'
    He directed spots for Apple Computer's 'Switch' campaign (2002).
    He frequently directs Miller High Life beer commercials.
    He agreed to direct a series of ads for the liberal activist group MoveOn PAC (2004).
    His version of 'A Brief History of Time' was more about Stephen Hawking's personal life than his theories.
    He is a college drop-out.
    His documentaries have never reached mainstream audiences.
    He specializes in picking out improbable topics for a documentary and making them work beyond expectations.
    German film director Werner Herzog made a bet with him that if he could get his fledgling documentary about pet cemetaries completed, he would eat his own shoe.
    The result was 'Gates of Heaven (1978),' widely considered as one of the best documentaries ever made, and Werner Herzog did indeed eat his own shoe.
    His films are frequently scored by Philip Glass.
    His documentary 'The Thin Blue Line' re-opened the case of Randall Adams, a man wrongfully convicted of murder by the corrupt Dallas judicial system. The resulting retrial freed him from death row.
    He invented the Interrotron, a camera device which allows him and his subject to be able to see each other during an interview.
    He is considered one of (if not, the) best documentary film directors in the world.
    He won an Oscar for 'The Fog of War (2003).'
