I was really impressed with this.

It could maybe have been a bit shorter, but it deals with the damage and aftermath of the Vietnam War. I appreciated the use of aspect ratio to indicate time period and the intermingling of archive footage into the film; it's the sort of thing that is easy to get wrong, but Lee managed to make it work well here.

Overall I was disappointed in it. There are the bones of a very good film in there but the script is a let down for me. It's a bit all over the place.

I liked the way Lee used the flashbacks. A nice change from the usual set up and worked really well IMO.

Worth watching but not the epic many publications are calling it. Lee has made several better films.
