Julius ROCKS ... the Vietnam War will never be the same
15 February 2010 | by (the Bay Area) – See all my reviews

This is a very unusual comedy (and, black comedy). Julius comes back from Vietnam "broken" emotionally. His straight-laced family doesn't know how to relate to him. So, he lives in the psych ward of the local VA hospital. He brightens up the day for many of the patients (even ones with missing limbs and traumatic memories of the war). Julius is the anti-establishment hero to the patients.

He spends a lot of time with a soldier (Albert Salmi), who digs graves for unlucky soldiers, and participates in MANY funerals (a running theme in the movie).

The head shrink has a beautiful girlfriend (Barbara Seagull), who also catches Julius' eyes. She becomes fascinated with the weirdness of Julius.

This is a simple plot. I enjoy it tremendously. I've passed a copy around to about 10 friends over the years; about half liked it, a couple LOVED it, the rest truly disliked it (not much gray area here).

It pops up on premium cable every month or 2.
