Critic Reviews for Dear America - Letters Home from Vietnam
Mr. Couturie, the director, and his associates have done a first-rate job.
The first film about Vietnam to come to us free of bias, free of rhetoric.
The structure of this Vietnam War docu is not particularly interesting, but the contents are.
Laudable though the intentions may be, there's something a little hollow about this all-star oral history of the Vietnam War.
Adds immeasurably to the growing stockpile of testaments about this tragic war.
When it comes to war, listen to the soldiers.
