Anyone for a bit of russian roulette?
This was a great film, I think most intriguing part about it is that it is a Vietnam war film but not that much of the film happens in Vietnam. Obviously the Russian Roulette scene was pretty intense, and a surprising jump from the beginning of the film. Robert de Niro was as usual an amazing member of the cast, and Christopher Walken likewise. I usually don’t like Vietnam war films that much, so it was nice that I found this one to be interesting. I guess the most interesting part was the depiction of these men after they left Vietnam and how it affects their life from then on.
Verdict: Great Vietnam film because of its treatment of life after Vietnam.
Worthy of the Top 100: Yes
Next Film: “Easy Rider”, directed by Dennis Hopper 1969
