Rashomon Shooting Video

Patterico has an interesting case of where video doesn't always get all the facts. You actually need to see a second video of the same incident to get a fuller picture of what's going on. The video can't lie? Or does it?

There are times when the video will not tell you the entire story. In this case, we only gain a better understanding of the situation after viewing a second video.

For those that don't quite get the title, Rashomon is a classic movie by Akira Kurosawa, who tells the same story from multiple perspectives.
