This Academy Award-winning documentary may just be the definitive account of the absurdity that was the Vietnam war. Praised by many, and denounced by just as many, the film was the center of controversy in its time. Some deemed it "un-American," while others praised it for its honesty in a dark time. Told through interviews with people who were in the heart of battle, interlaced with stock footage of the war, it's a film that must be seen by all.
