Vietnam War Movies of My Youth

I liked this review. I hadn’t thought about this movie in a long time. I remember watching it when I was younger.

It came out during the age when I was just beginning to comprehend the larger world. Movies about the Vietnam war had great influence on my young mind. Vietnam had a massive impact on our country even if the lessons weren’t learned, but the political aftermath of that war particularly shaped the collective attitude of GenXers. There is good reason we’re known as a cynical generation.

“In Country” was another movie about Vietnan veterans that I watched as a kid. It wasn’t as good of a movie, but it also had a strong impact on me.
