Storyline

GOOD TIMES, WONDERFUL TIMES was Lionel Rogosin's plea for humanity and against war and fascism. For two years, Rogosin traveled to twelve countries to collect footage of war atrocities from their archives. He interspersed these harrowing images with scenes of a London cocktail party's mundane chatter. GOOD TIMES, WONDERFUL TIMES was released in 1964, at the height of the Vietnam War, and became one of the great anti-war films of the era.

A classic independent film
21 August 2001 | by griessSee all my reviews

Lionel Rogosin's antiwar film predated Viet Nam, but had great impact in the sixties. The film cuts between documentary war footage and extemporized conversations. Rogosin was the epitome of the independent film-maker whose style has been much imitated.
