This is a great film.It is a real acid trip.
7 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story line is excellent. THe two lead actors give outstanding performances. The psychedelics effects and editing are top notch. This movie is sure to become a cult classic. The music selection is great, it matches the scenes perfectly. The sound mix is also good.

I give the movie 10 stars. I can't find a trailer on any of the internet sites. A friend of mine had a VHS copy of the film, including the trailer. It was awesome. I liked seeing some real Vietnam footage mixed in with the movie. The opening credit sequence blew me away. I would like to see this movie on the big screen, in theaters. Where can I see the movie?
