Seems to take its name not so much from the Arlington Memorial Cemetery, where much of the action takes place, but from the stiffness of the characters it portrays.

A handsome but fragmentary film that can't decide which story to tell.

Francis Coppola's 1987 Vietnam meditation was his best film in a while, though it's still something less than satisfying.

There's a curious ambiguity in Coppola's feelings about the soldiers and their life.

Every moment is right, and yet the film as a whole is incomplete.
