Quotes

Michael Herr: It's the ultimate bloodsport, and it would be, not useful to pretend to anyone, that it isn't exciting. That it doesn't really turn people on, always has done and always will. It can't be an accident that the bloodiest century in history was also the century of the movie camera.

Definitely "new" views on war
17 October 2004 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

The common war documentary only brings forth the horror and sadness of war and excludes things that might change that simple analysis.

This documentary on the contrary, includes the horror and disgust of war, but it also, importantly, stands out to be one of the few documentaries I have ever seen, too explain what I call: 'the libido of war' (which I did not know existed in war).

This is done in an exquisite manner by portraying soldiers of the Vietnam War telling the stories of their 'private agendas' out in the jungle.

For a viewer interested in the odd and at the same time open for new perspectives on all matters, this movie is a must see!

I can actually understand the poor rating of the film, the movie could be done in a faster pace, 'yes', more interviews, yes, and more facts, yes. But the the movie is 'new' in a very specific way, and just for that, it deserves at least 7 out of 10.
