The best short film ever made



I watched this short film on a dvd called First Works. It contains the first films of great filmakers like Spike Lee, Martin Scorsese, and Oliver Stone. I expected nothing from Stone's first film and wasn't sure whether they would show this one or Mad Man of Martinique. I was absolutely amazed by the emotion of Last Year in Viet Nam and the way he portrayed a veteran living in New York. There was no dialogue, however, the images and music created the perfect experience. This is the greatest short film I've ever seen.
