Not being a movie aficionado, I am not familiar with the names of leading Directors, Scriptwriters, Producers and the like, but I can tell an outstanding movie when I see one.
The makers of this fine movie could well be now at the top of their fields, or may well get there pretty soon. I know that the actors are already there.
It takes talent closer to genius to show with such realism how a national tragedy like Vietnam has impacted the everyday life of a typically average American family, and make us see at close range why there are so many homeless Vietnam veterans.
Without getting into gratuitous scenes of gore and bloodshed, it makes us understand why so many youg men had flashbacks of what they had been thru.
The dialog is particularly gripping, and gives us an idea of what went on in so many families in the aftermath of Vietnam.
I wish there were more good movies like this one, not just about Vietnam, but about other social conditions as well.
