Insight into the REAL goings on... Thank god we have this film to educate, inform and highlight on the vicious, disturbing and sickening attacks of American troops on innocent cultures... Please don't be sucked into all things American! Their history is so biased and you will never know the truth unless you are educated into knowing... I am a Film Studies student working on Alvarez' short films and I am so impressed. Yes, they are radical and experimental, I enjoy the interaction and sheer intensity of his work. Ho Chi Minh was clearly a good, influential man. It is a shame that his films are not shown widely throughout the West in big mass dominated cinemas such as the Odeon! We are bombarded with American culture 24/7! We need a change!
