    Errol Morris has been doing a great series of blog posts on film and reality over at the New York Times:

    In particular, scroll down for his 3-part series entitled “Which Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?” on 2 photos by Roger Fenton during the Crimean War. It’s captivating, although long.

    Other interesting posts concern the re-enactments in his film “Thin Blue Line” and their relationship to truth and a notorious photograph from Abu Graib.
