Movie Reviews

“Its view is limited and its narrative at times sketchy (…) Both deeply troubling and troublesome (…) but its feelings for time, place and blue-collar people are genuine” Vincent Canby: The New York Times

“This bravely innovative, kingsized movie (…) enables one to fully understand why this particular war not only destroyed the hopes and dreams of America’s young men, but why it left so many of them permanently shattered and alienated from society.” Kathleen Carroll: New York Daily News
