Rated R · 110 minutes · 1974

A masterful documentary (1974), one of the most unsettling discussions of Vietnam and its aftermath ever to appear in any medium. Peter Davis, known for his expert television special The Selling of the Pentagon, portrays the war as a widening spiral of insanity, a vortex that pulled otherwise rational, decent men and women into the depths of deceit, degradation, and destruction—both moral and physical. More than a few spectators at the premiere wept openly; it's a tribute to Davis's integrity as a filmmaker that he keeps his indignation firmly under control and allows his images, his subjects, and the events his camera witnesses to speak for themselves. Highly recommended.
