Filmmaker Peter Davis explains the Vietnam War with interviews, war footage and scenes of U.S. culture.
" A reminder of how the best documentaries can resonate years after their release. "
" Not only the definitive American documentary about the war in Vietnam but a landmark political action. "
" We're bludgeoned by the point of view, we don't like the feeling of manipulation we get. Yet there are scenes here of incredible power, even for a nation which watched this war on television every evening. "
" A masterful documentary, one of the most unsettling discussions of Vietnam and its aftermath ever to appear in any medium. "
" The unnerving brilliance of the film owes to the director's skill at assembling information and allowing it to speak for itself. "
" It's one of the best documentaries ever made, a superb film about the thoughts and feelings of the era, the whole festering, spirited animus of it. "
" Davis's film seems as much a prosecution of the present as it is of the recent past; only the names and geographies have been changed. "
" Hearts and Minds is a tough film but it is no mere rehash of sad events. It is always aware of the primacy of man when man's given even half a chance. "
