The movie is diffuse and wandering. It's someone telling a long, interesting story who can't get to the point.
I wonder how else you could tell such a terrible story. I find the genuis of the movie is what Roger Ebert pointed out - halfway through the picture, the focus shifts to Dith Pran's point of view. How many other mainstream movies have done this?
Sorry, Mr. Canby...I respect you very much, but with this movie I have to wonder what you are missing from the experience

your brain is diffuse and wandering-- how could you miss THIS film's 'point'????? you're the quintessential example of the saw on film critics--'legless men telling others how to run a race'--
