A corrupt world, then and now
Television review: The Vietnam War (RTE1)
I guess I was trying to forget Vietnam. That's what all of us try to do - forget it. And that's just the movies. In fact for most of us, it's only the movies.
Yeah, I thought I was just about done with 'Nam after Full Metal Jacket, and so I kinda avoided the first few episodes of the documentary series The Vietnam War, directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick for PBS in America, now running on RTE1.
But then I was told by someone of impeccable taste that I really needed to see this, that I had to beat off the demons one more time and throw myself right back in there - with the consolation that at least now I know how it all turned out.
