Aroview: This film won the Best Picture Oscar for its compelling and sincere account of the Vietnam, also ushering the era of 1980s film reappraisals of the Vietnam War period. It also heralded the arrival to the bigtime of director Oliver Stone.
3 stars (Good Enough) Pauline Kael nailed it when she said, "Oliver Stone is talented but tasteless." The battle scenes are inspired, but the morality is heavy handed and the characters are... well, sort of shit. I'm glad I saw it, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it to any~Pop&Coffee
