Same "stuff"... different war
9 November 2007 | by PossumtrotSee all my reviews

De Palma already did his murder/rape hatchet job in 1989, when Leftist darlings Sean Penn and Michael J. Fox offered their considerable acting attributes to "Casualties of War".

Some folks posting on this site are already accepting as truth the premise of De Palma's film. Whoa!

If American troops had actually committed this atrocity, the mainstream media would have trumpeted it, and would have never let us forget it. It would be bigger than Abu Gharib.

De Palma not only copies Hitchcock's cinematic style unabashedly; he's now reduced to recycling his own scripts and plots.

At least he had the decency to wait until Vietnam was some time in the past before he urinated over the legacy of those veterans.

I have checked Mr. De Palma's bio on this site, and there is no mention that he ever served in the armed forces. As much as I loathe Oliver Stone, he's a combat Marine, and deserving of a salute for his service.

De Palma needs to stick to gangster flicks. Otherwise, when it comes to the American fighting trooper, he, like the rest of Hollywierd, is clueless.
